Hey Polar Nation! My name is Mr. Capelle and I am the biology teacher here at North Community High School.

A little bit about myself: I grew up in Central Minnesota and graduated from Brainerd High School in 2005. After some jumping around between different jobs I took a position as an assistant coach for my father, the head basketball coach and longtime biology teacher at Upsala High School. It was then that I caught the teaching bug and knew that I was going to follow in my dad's footsteps and get back into the classroom, this time as a teacher.

My wife Laura and I have been married for 9 years; she works as an optometrist for a medical center based out of Stillwater, MN. We live a short drive away in St. Louis Park with Isabelle and Oliver, our two springer spaniels, and a future Polar in our son Anders, who will turn 2 in December.

When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy spending my time with Laura and Anders, walking the dogs, cooking, reading, and golfing. I am also a huge supporter of the Twins, Minnesota United FC, the Green Bay Packers, and anything created by Marvel. I am proud to be a part of Polar Nation and I am eager every day to work with the best students a teacher could ask for!
