Leaving Shawnee High School a year ago put a lot of things in perspective for me. Mainly, it made me realize just how great of a teacher Mr. Cappello is.
I went to a certain University this past year and tried out their TV program. What surprised me, and amazed me, was that the students at Shawnee were actually better at television production than the University students.
At Shawnee, camera shots were steadier. Audio was mixed the right way. Microphones were properly handled. Videos were edited using professional techniques. Crews were dedicated and trained like they should be. And it’s all thanks to Mr. Cappello.
All of this made me realize how lucky I am to have fallen in to Shawnee’s TV program. There’s nowhere else you can get a TV education like this. It was really a privilege to be a part of, and that was in thanks to the dedication of the students and teacher.
I could go on and on about the impact Mr. Cappello made on hundreds of students, but I think if you take a look at everything this site has to offer, you’ll see what a great teacher he was.
On behalf of everyone who’s been a part of the one-and-only Shawnee Television program, I wish Mr. Cappello the best of luck in his future at Maple Shade. Everyone there will be lucky to have such an intelligent and inspiring person working with them.
and the rest of Shawnee TV.
