Top Teacher: Andrew Capone – Henry Johnson Charter School

Making learning fun to keep kids coming back is challenge, but also the best part of the job for Andrew Capone, a first-grade teacher at Henry Johnson Charter School in Albany. He knows that early education is key to keep students engaged long term.

This is where students learn addition, subtraction and where to read and write. It’s also where they’re encouraged to dream big.

Mr. Capone describes his first-grade class as a family and a team, so he builds them all up together.
