To the Editor:
In a sea of deeply talented educators working in the Trumbull public schools, Roger Capobianco (or “Mr. Cap,” as he was called by his students) was exceptional. Mr. Cap’s infectious, larger-than-life personality, his gleaming ear-to-ear smile, and his passion for the classroom made him a beloved figure by colleagues and students alike. His influence on those who passed through his classroom door was nothing short of profound. Today, thousands of former students, spread all over the globe, owe Mr. Cap an enormous debt of gratitude. I am one of those students.
