Something Pooler and Capparrel have been able to bond over is their high energy and love for making their students smile.
“I have had sleepless nights sitting at the keyboard doing work,” Pooler said.“As soon as first period comes in and I’m in front of everybody, it is like someone just turned on the switch and I just get this instantaneous high, I love it.”
Pooler has shifted the way that many students and teachers see the classroom and that is something they will never forget.
“He makes people laugh and the kids actually enjoy his class,” Capparrel said. “It is surprising to see someone teach an AP class that kids want to take their senior year, and that they want to take it because of him, that is really remarkable.”
