Jodie & Soda are celebrating inspiring teachers and they tracked down Soda’s Highschool P.E Teacher Tony Capomolla who helped to become the person he is today.

“I with a lot of other people tried to push you back on the rails not sure if we succeeded”

“To describe Mark as a student I think the technical term is ‘smarty pants’.  He started in Year 7 he was like a tall skinny kid with a big head that laughed it was like having our own dicky knee”

Mr Capomolla did reveal he never forgot teaching a young Soda but it might not be for all the good reasons.

“When you think back over your teaching years you only remember the really good or the really bad and I’ve got to say you’re pretty much unforgettable”
