Geetings from Mr. Angelo Caponi, your child's music teacher at Minneola Elementary Charter School.This is my 18th year teaching at Minneola Charter.I am a native Floridian born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on May 23, 1973. My schools growing up were:
- North Lauderdale Elementary (Home of Leo the Lion, our mascot)
- Silver Lakes Middle School in North Lauderdale
- South Dade High School (Home of the Bucaneers)
- Miami Dade Community College
- College graduate at the University of Central Florida in May of 2001..Go Knights!!!!
I moved to Homestead, Florida as teenager and went to Miami Dade Community College surviving Hurricane Andrew back in 1992. Then, my ultimate accomplishment was to transfer to the University of Central Florida in 1995. I am very proud of my University and continue to support the alumni association. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education K-6 and a Musical Education Certificate for grades K-12. I began teaching 4th grade at Minneola for 5 years and 1 year in first grade before I became a full time music teacher.I am happily married to Mrs. Jennifer Caponi, who I met at Minneola and have two children, Sofia Vanessa (6) and Christopher Angelo (11). Sofia loves to sing and dance and Christopher is a soccer player for NTC and also is a Webelo Scout for Pack 268.I play tennis, sing, and shoot a little basketball.Back when I was in High School, I was in the school chorus and our chorus teacher, John Rose, was an inspiration to my education. For my 4 years in high school, he strived for his students to succeed not only in music, but in life. Our chorus consistently had straight superiors in all levels of state competition. Below is an older image of my High School Chorus. Can you find me?Contact me through e-mail any time you wish.
If you have any questions regarding your child's musical,
I will be glad to assist you any way that I can.
