Introducing Cambridgeport's Incoming Assistant Principal Beginning School Year 2024/2025
Posted on 05/02/2024
Hello Cambridgeport School Community,

I am pleased to introduce our incoming assistant principal for the school year 2024-2025! After a long and thorough search with a team of ten Cambridgeport School Community Members, we have chosen our new permanent assistant principal.

I am forever grateful for the work Mr. Anthony Valdez has done and will continue to do until our last day of school.

M. MacchiHello Cambridgeport School Community! My name is Michael Macchi, and I am thrilled to be your assistant principal beginning in the Fall of the 24-25 school year.

Over the past 11 years, I have held a number of different roles within Boston Public Schools. I began my career as a 3rd Grade Inclusion Teacher at the Phineas Bates Elementary School. During this time, the Bates team worked collaboratively to design a vision and model for inclusive education that is currently being used throughout the district today.

After spending five years as a teacher, I enrolled in a program for Aspiring Principals at Boston College’s Lynch Leadership Academy, which included a yearlong internship at The Perry School. After finishing the program, I continued my career at The Perry as the school’s assistant principal during the 2019-2020 school year before transitioning into the principal role from 2020 - 2022. During my time at The Perry, we were able to successfully transition from a K-8 to a K-6 school community, provide students with access to inclusive academic and social-emotional learning clubs, including enhanced music and student-leadership partner programs, and create a positive academic and social-emotional learning environment during the pandemic that led to statewide recognition in growth and achievement.

Most recently, I have had the privilege of working as an Instructional Coach at The Guild School, where I’ve collaborated closely with school leadership to equip our staff with: proven and effective curricula, student-focused and standards-aligned teaching practices, and necessary resources to ensure students get to experience the daily joys of learning in the best possible academic environment.

I am a Boston University Terrier (‘12, Bachelor of Arts, Psychology), a Umass-Boston Beacon (‘13, Masters of Education, Elementary Education), and a Boston College Eagle (‘19, Lynch Leadership Academy).

When I am not at work, you can find me either reading, golfing, or hanging out with my wife Devika and our cat Chester!

Thank you for welcoming me to your incredible school community. I am so excited to be a part of the Cambridgeport School team for years to come!

Michael Macchi
