Ms. Capobianco with Congressman Chris Murphy
"English teacher Anna Capobianco leads her students at West Hartford's Hall High School to ever-greater heights. When the College Board introduced its new AP Seminar course, Capobianco eagerly volunteered to pioneer it at Hall, helping the organization refine the curriculum and reading AP exams at the end of the year. Nearly all of Capobianco's AP Seminar students passed the new course's exam, with five of the 16 earning 5's, the highest score. In addition to AP classes, Capobianco also team-teaches an English class with a reading interventionist; last year, the entire class reached grade-level performance by the end of school. Hall students turn to Capobianco for support beyond the classroom; she stays in touch with many students as they move on to college, and Hall graduates often cite her influence as foundational to their success."
