Early Life and Education
Early childhood education is an integral component of a child’s growth and development. It provides them with opportunities to master basic reading, writing, math concepts as well as social abilities.
Research demonstrates that children who receive quality early childhood education perform better academically and experience fewer health problems or dependence in adult life. Furthermore, it has beneficial effects on their self-esteem and moral outlook.
Early years are crucial for building strong emotional bases and self-confidence, which are necessary for learning, problem-solving and healthy risk taking. Small class sizes and frequent teacher interaction enable children to cultivate these essential skills in an atmosphere where they feel known, cared for and encouraged to practice them. Ultimately, these abilities prepare children for future academic and professional endeavors.
George Caputo has always shown patience in his professional career. By taking his time, he was able to secure an excellent job.
He began his coaching career at George Mason in 2006, his first job out of college. It was during that year that George Mason made the Final Four – marking his first major accomplishment as an assistant coach.
Larranaga was so impressed with him, he hired him as an assistant coach for both of his teams – they went to the Final Four too – and Larranaga eventually earned himself a head coaching position with Miami.
He was proud to have been one of the driving forces behind that progress, yet it would take 10 years before he got his own chance at head coaching a program that should be even better than what it currently is.
Achievements and Honors
