I’m Steve Cappello, candidate for Medford Township Board of Education. I am a husband, father of four, and professional educator. I’m excited to have an opportunity to serve the community that has been so giving to me and my family. I began my teaching career right here in Medford as a teacher at Shawnee High School. It was there that I learned how special Medford Township is and decided this was the place I wanted to raise my family.
After seven rewarding years in the classroom, I left Shawnee to pursue a career in educational administration. I served as the Director of Technology for the Maple Shade School District for six years. Presently, I am the principal of the Howard R. Yocum Elementary School. During my time in administration I served for a brief time as the President of the Burlington County Principals and Supervisors Assosciation and as a member of the Board of Directors for the New Jersey Principals and Supervisor Association. Along the way, I earned my law degree, a Master in Educational Leadership and taught adjunct classes at Camden County College.
During my career I have worked with students from age 4 to well into their 60s. I have been incredibly lucky to get to work with so many students who have touched my life. I am asking that my neighbors in Medford consider me when voting on November 3rd. Thank you for your support.
