Stressing Colleges, Careers and a Future

Coan Middle School focuses on building the foundations for the future.

EAST LAKE — One of the philosophies that Coan Middle School Principal Betsy Bockman has is that children should have a clear understanding about their choices and how their actions affect their futures.

It's one of the reasons she instituted year-long one-on-one conferences with parents, teachers and students to get the kids to understand their success and achievements here help build the foundation for a successful future.

Part of that also is showing what success looks like and the importance of — even at a young age — of setting goals and personal benchmarks.

Yesterday was College Day for staff to show their college spirit.  Here is picture of some of us. 

 On Friday, Coan hosted 30 Junior Achievement speakers who spoke to Coan students about college, careers, business opportunities and personal finance.

On Thursday, Coan teachers sported their collegiate sweatshirts to reinforce that message, including Bockman, who apparently is a Seminole.
