Featured Student from 2013 Cohort: Peter Caccavale
Before coming to the MAT program, I attended the College of the Holy Cross as a Pre-Med/Classics major. I then moved on to receive my MA in Classics at Brandeis, with a focus on Latin and Greek as well as Ancient History. Being raised in a family of teachers, I have always wanted to teach, I just wasn't sure in what capacity. As a teaching assistant and writing tutor here at Brandeis I've really developed a love for working with my peers and helping them succeed. My hope is to bring that same passion to my future high school students in order to inspire them to succeed in the classroom. Having been a part of the Brandeis graduate community for a few years already, I know of the high reputation of the Education department and I'm looking forward to the new challenge of the MAT program.
Peter is currently a history student teacher at Belmont High School.
