Incoming superintendent addresses Westlake Kiwanis
Scott Goggin, the current superintendent of Midview Schools and soon-to-be superintendent of Westlake Schools, addressed the Westlake Kiwanis at a recent meeting. Scott is originally from North Olmsted and attended St. Edward in Lakewood. He has a degree in special education from Bowling Green State University and a graduate degree in rehabilitation counseling from Kent State University. He is currently working on a doctoral degree in educational leadership from Ashland University, which he expects to receive in August.
Scott began his teaching career in 1993 at Lakewood City Schools as a special education teacher. He became an assistant principal of Midview High School in 2002 and principal of Midview Middle School in 2005. In 2010 he became the director of education for Midview Schools. He became the superintendent of Midview Schools in 2013 where he will serve until taking the job as superintendent of Westlake Schools this fall.
Scott said his goal is to meet the needs of the learners. "People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care,” he said. Scott and his wife, Michelle, who is a special education teacher in Lakewood, and two children, Emma and Scott, currently live in Avon but have just purchased a new home in Westlake.
