My name is Michael Forgione, and I am excited to be a part of the teaching faculty and athletic staff here at Bracken Christian School; a school that holds a special place in my life.
I was born in College Station, Texas, to a family of proud Aggies. My father is a college professor, so we travelled often and spent many years living in different states, until returning to Texas in 2006. I started high school at Castle Hills First Baptist School in San Antonio. Through a series of events, God brought about a change in my schooling and I found myself beginning my junior year at Bracken Christian School. Bracken became a place where my faith blossomed, my maturity grew, and I made close friends that I still spend time with regularly.
I graduated from Bracken as class of 2010, and I proudly followed in my family’s footsteps to Texas A&M University to pursue a career as a physical therapist. During my time as a student, God brought about another change in my life, bringing me to change my major and to focus on a career that more directly pursued my passions of people and sports. I have been involved with athletics since the day that I could walk; playing youth & high school soccer for 12 years, semi-professional paintball for 9 years, high school track & field for 3 years, and high school football for 2 years. Nothing brings me greater joy than being part of a team and working toward success.
As class of 2014, I graduated from Texas A&M with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Sport Management, and a minor in Business Administration. I knew that I wanted to contribute to raising strong Christian leaders, and I knew that I wanted to coach athletics, but I did not know how to get there. Out of college, I received several excellent job offers from different businesses, but I knew that none of them would take me to where I wanted to go. Unsure of what to do next, God opened up a brief opportunity for me at San Antonio Christian Schools as an Assistant Track & Field coach. It was there that God showed me His plan and fueled my interest in teaching and coaching youth & high school students.
Once God led me in the direction of teaching and coaching, I enrolled in the Texas Education Agency Teacher Certification program and I am currently working toward obtaining my TEA Certification. Shortly thereafter I found myself back at Bracken discussing work, this time as an adult, not as a student behind a desk. I am privileged to be here at Bracken with the fantastic staff that has changed my life in so many ways. I hope that I can contribute to the lives of students in the same way that my teachers did for me not so long ago.
....the BCS Bailadoras!! We are so excited to be able to see these young women come together and form a new team for Bracken Christian School. They performed for the first time during the Pep Rally on Friday, October 9th and again at the pre-game show that evening for Homecoming. We are looking forward to seeing them worship through dance in the coming weeks at one of our Chapels!
