New Site Focuses on State Senate Candidate’s Support for Education And Credentials As a Former Public School Teacher
STOW – Stow resident Dean Cavaretta, candidate for Massachusetts State Senate in the Middlesex and Worcester District, is featured in a new Web site highlighting his support for public education and his experience as a licensed public school teacher.
The Web site, MomsAndDadsForDean.com, was officially unveiled by the Cavaretta for State Senate campaign today.
“I am running for State Senate to offer new policies that will put education and the economy first,” said Cavaretta in a statement. “This new Web site will help me show people how I will use my skills as a former teacher to support accountable and local education reform.”
MomsAndDadsForDean.com features a collection of education-related information about Cavaretta and his campaign.
For example, the site includes detailed information about Cavaretta’s professional experience in the Ashland, Lexington, Acton-Boxborough and Concord Carlisle school systems – skills the candidate says make him perfectly suited to know how to reform public education in Massachusetts.
A biographical page on the Web site notes that Cavaretta became dual-certified to teach United States History and Political Science to Grades 5-12 by the Massachusetts Department of Education. He taught U.S. History to eighth graders in Lexington. He also completed Secondary Education and Student-Teaching Coursework with Framingham State College’s Post Baccalaureate Teacher Licensure (PBTL) Program. Cavaretta student-taught at Ashland High School while concurrently working as the History Department’s Special Education inclusion aide. He has served as a substitute teacher in different systems, and has taught ESL and Adult Basic Education (ABE) programs to immigrant, adult learners at the ABE Program at Devens and Mt. Wachusett Community College (Adjunct Instructor), as well as at a Brazilian church founded in Marlborough.
The site also points out that Cavaretta has combined his teaching skills and a love of sports to help student-athletes achieve success on and off the playing fields. He served as the Freshman Football Coach at Concord Carlisle Regional High School and Acton-Boxborough Regional High School. He was also Head Junior Varsity and Assistant Varsity Lacrosse Coach at Acton-Boxborough Regional High School, where he is a proud member of the Acton-Boxborough Athletic Hall of Fame.
MomsAndDadsForDean.com also contains information about how Cavaretta intends to reform public education, including a Ten-Point Plan the candidate is proposing as part of his campaign. Cavaretta has repeatedly vowed he will be the “Education State Senator” if he is elected, focusing on policies that grant higher performing school districts, including Middlesex and Worcester, more autonomy over school building assistance, regionalization agreements and curriculum decisions. Cavaretta also supports an MCAS Exam for U.S. History and greater state assistance for training rookie teachers, calling professional development “the new unfunded mandate” in Massachusetts Education Reform that needs to be fixed.
The Web site also contains testimonials from people supporting Cavaretta’s candidacy.
