Dave Bocchichio has been teaching in East Hartford Public Schools for eighteen years. He spent the first nine years of his career teaching physical education at Hockanum Elementary School. For the past nine school years Mr. Bocchichio has been teaching health, physical education and a student leadership program as Synergy Alternative High School.
Mr. Bocchichio received his Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education from Central Connecticut State University and earned his Master’s Degree in Holistic Thinking from the Graduate Institute. In 2001, he received many accolades, including the Red Cross Humanitarian of the Year Award, after donating one of his kidneys to the mother of three of his physical education students.
Mr. Bocchichio’s main focus as of late has been in the field of health education. He has enjoyed creating unique health units that are engaging to at- risk students. The ultimate goal of his program is to provide students with the knowledge and skills to overcome obstacles that many teenagers face in order for them to be physically, socially, and emotionally healthy.
