A massive collage board of memorable alumni, posters of the most hip bands from the musical eras of the 1970’s-90’s, and artwork that consists of vibrant colors sure to catch your eye. Does this classroom ring a bell?

If you haven’t had the chance to take Spanish III or Spanish VI, you are missing put on one of the most lively classrooms on the CB campus. The iconic Room 701 belongs to Mr. Tomas “Cap” Capogreco ’86. Cap’s calm personality along with his dynamic classroom makes learning the Spanish language enjoyable and stress-free. The Talon sat down with Cap to get a tour of his classroom and hear about the significance his vibrant classroom has to him.

 

“I’ve gathered the photos over the years because kids have always given me pictures of their sports, their prom, of Homecoming. After a while, I just had them all in a big box, and I didn’t want to throw them away. So I started putting them up on my wall, and then as more kids saw all the pictures of everybody else, then people just kept giving me pictures and giving me pictures.”

 

 

“Some of [the photos] I’ve taken — the faculty stuff that I’ve taken is up there. It’s basically CB history from 1994 to the present.”

“Kids constantly look at it in the classroom. Sometimes when we have reunions here kids will come back and say ‘Do you still have my pictures up on the wall?’ or ‘Can we go up to your room and look at the collage?’ I put up any photo unless it’s inappropriate.”

“Since I am a Spanish teacher, I try to do stuff that is related to my culture, which is Mexican.”

“I always like color. I like color on the walls, otherwise these walls are just white and boring. ”

“With the class photos, I started collecting those and then stopped for whatever reason. Mr. English always used to give me one and I just don’t have them anymore.”
