Coach Rochford - BHS Educator of the Month (October 2021)

Bogota Athletics would like to send a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Coach Rochford for being named BHS Educator of the Month [October 2021].

Coach Roshford joined the Bogota school district in September of 2016 as a second grade teacher at Steen Elementary School. He then joined the Bogota Jr./Sr. High School Staff in 2018.  Since then, he has served in various roles including Middle School History Teacher, Cross Country Coach, Track Coach, member of Bogota Hall of Fame Committee and currently as the Videographer, Financial Literature teacher, and Internship Program Coordinator.  In addition, Coach Rochford is our Morning Show Director, and as quoted by one of his colleagues, “Mr. Rochford has taken the BucNation show to an enjoyable time! It is very creative and informative.” Another colleague said “He is doing a fantastic job in his new position. The Morning show is always well organized and entertaining. He is also doing a great job with cross country.”  He gets students and athletes involved in our school, whether they are helping put together videos for our YouTube channel, interviewing staff members, recording varsity games, or simply creating a space for students to come together with Buc pride.  Coach Rochford has led our Boys and Girls Cross Country Team to an undefeated season while also winning the league championship. Both academically and athletically, Coach Rochford pushes our students to become the best versions of themselves. His colleagues have stated, “Mr Rochford has completely overhauled the Videography Program in a very short period of time. Students are excited to collaborate with their peers and they can't wait to watch the show. This is what education is all about.” Mr. Rochford is an asset to our District and School. Congratulations Mr. Rochford for being our FIRST post COVID Teacher of the Month and thank you for your passion and dedication to our students! And as always, we hope Mr. Rochford has a great Bogota Buc Day!
