#TeacherTuesday: Albert Catarro

We’re proud to feature the very entrepreneurial educator, Albert Catarro, Ed.D. as this week’s #TeacherTuesday. A Business and Cooperative Education teacher at William Tennent High School in the Centennial School District PA for the past 20 years, he specializes in developing school, business and community partnerships which provide incredible opportunities for the students. He says, “The first time I witnessed authentic learning through a business/education partnership, I was hooked.”

In 2013, Al completed his dissertation centered on the impact of No Child Left Behind on Career and Technical Education. In the upcoming year, he will directly implement partnerships in the classroom with Entrepreneurship serving as one of many focus-points to address Career Education and Work Academic Standards.

Below, second from left, Dr. Catarro is pictured with other teachers and students who were part of CentennialX, an incubator/accelerator which he helped to found. This photo was taken at MedicineX held at Stanford University last summer.

Tell us who else creates forward-thinking opportunities for their students and we’ll feature them in an upcoming #TeacherTuesday.
