Jim Coonan started at PCCS in 2009 as IT Support Coordinator. Mr. Coonan’s daughters were students at PCCS and as a stay at home dad he was very involved in volunteering in their classrooms. The need for an IT person was his doorway into a job at the school. Mr. Coonan has a Bachelor’s of Science Marketing/Finance Degree and many years of IT work which started as a hobby then led to a new career at the charter school.
He has always had an interest in nature and animals which he feels he has passed on to his two daughters. He thinks it is incredible to be able to have his daughters educated at such a great school – let alone having a job there as well. Mr. Coonan is also the current Athletic Director and the Cross Country and Track coach for PCCS. One interesting thing people might not know about Mr. Coonan is that he speaks Japanese. The movie Mr. Coonan would watch any time he had a chance would be The Godfather.
