Future Goals Now Available for Teachers and Families

A FREE and fun online course to keep students and parents engaged at home.

Hockey has always been more than a game, it’s a community united by a sport. The NHL and NHLPA remain committed to supporting the hockey community, students, parents, and teachers during these ever-changing times. With many school districts and parents utilizing remote learning plans, we are offering teachers and parents free, remote access to our Future Goals program. Future Goals includes two online resources: Hockey Scholar – an interactive hockey-themed STEM curriculum for middle-school and elementary-school-aged students and Healthier Me – a program that provides elementary-school-aged students the tools they need to make healthy decisions.

St. Louis Blues – Teacher Highlight

Blues Teacher of the Month — November 

Congratulations to Mr. Brian Stockdell, the St. Louis Blues’ November Teacher of the Month! Mr. Stockdell is a sixth-grade science teacher at James Bridger Middle School. 

Why did you decide to become a teacher? What is your favorite part about teaching?

I became a teacher because I’ve always liked helping others.  My teachers as a kid inspired me to become a teacher as they encouraged success through learning and cared for their students.  My favorite part about teaching is interacting with the kids and seeing their excitement when they observe scientific phenomena for the first time. 

What is your favorite part of Future Goals? How are you using it in your classroom?

I enjoy Future Goals because not only is it highly engaging but also educational. It also gives me the opportunity to talk about sports—at least the St. Louis Blues. I use Future Goals to both to teach concepts and also to review concepts already taught in class.

Who is your favorite NHL player and why?

My favorite NHL player is Colton Parayko. My favorite players in most sports are defensive players, and Colton is a rising star that happens to play for my favorite NHL team. Colton actually visited our school a few years ago.  He was great as he interacted with the kids working on Future Goals and encouraged them to value education.
