Macchi Joins New MHS Administrative Team

Former Middle School East teacher, Brian Macchi, is the new Assistant Principal for House B at Milford High School.





Brian Macchi always had his eye on "home." While playing professional independent league baseball, touching home plate was always a good thing. In his current career as an educator and administrator, at home, in Milford, is just as satisfying. "I've been through the Milford school system," Macchi noted. "I've been in Milford my whole life."

Upon graduating from MHS, Macchi went on to Boston College, earning an education degree. For the next four years, he alternated between baseball and education, after getting a permanent sub job at Middle School East.

When it came time to make a definitive career decision, Macchi made the difficult choice to "walk away from baseball" for teaching. The Middle School East sub job became a permanent position and Macchi spent the next seven years teaching eighth grade mathematics, while coaching baseball This past year, the MHS girl's softball team celebrated their second consecutive state championship under Macchi's tutelage.

He added, "I did two years of freshman boys (baseball), when I first started teaching, two years of freshman girls (softball), two years of JV (Junior Varsity) girls and two years of Varsity basketball." Macchi also coaches Milford Legion baseball, saying, "I stay busy, active in the community."

Macchi is equally active in education and following eight years as an educator, is ready to apply his energy to his new position as Assistant Principal for House B at Milford High School. He said, "I think it's great because I've seen it from all points of view. I've seen it from a student's point of view that went from starting in elementary school and working all the way to high school. From my point of view, I can legitimately say [to students] that I was in your shoes. It can be a personal connection for me and them being from Milford."

Macchi hopes to bring the same level of "energy and excitement" to his administrative position that he displayed in both his teaching and baseball activities. Similarly, Macchi recognizes that education is truly a team effort. "You have a lot of people involved in this ... students, the teachers, the administrators, anyone in the building, really."

Reflecting on the administration's teamwork, Macchi said, "We have meetings all the time. Just keeping everyone on the same page is important. Communication, I think, is the biggest [factor] in success."

The Milford High School administration has changed with a new Principal in Carolyn Banach; two new Assistant Principals, Macchi and Mark McGillivray; and a new Guidance Director, Mathew Baione. Noting the collaboration shown by administrators is strong and growing, Macchi said they are confident starting the school year and the challenges it poses including a new schedule.

As Assistant Principal for House B, Macchi is charged with overseeing the freshman and junior classes. He lobbied for the freshman class saying he hoped their familiarity with him from Middle School East will help their transition to high school.

Much like a baseball player looks to define his career through his success on the field, Macchi hopes to make a lasting impression as a MHS Assistant Principal. "That's exciting to me," he said. "It energizes and motivates me, every day, to see what kind of difference I can make, not only in the lives of the students but in the school, as a whole."
