Hello!

My name is Tom Cappelen and I am a Special Education Teacher at OHA.  This is my 3rd full time year at OHA, and 13th year teaching in the Mahtomedi School District.  I work with students on Individual Education Plans (IEPs) in our DCD and EBD programs.  I previously taught Special Education at Mounds View High School from 2000-2006. 

I am originally from Hoffman Estates, IL but love living in Maplewood and working in Mahtomedi.  I am married to my amazing wife Julie and have two children (Maggie and Ty), two step-daughters (Maddie and Abbey) and a dog (Otis).  I coach high school football at Tartan High School.

I hold my Master's degree in the area of K-12 Special Education as well as licenses in  Emotional/Behavioral Disorders, and Developmental Cognitive Delay.

I look forward to a great year at OHA!  Please feel free to contact me with any questions at any time.
My school phone number is 651-407-2351.
