Coach A (Aaronson)

Hello 8th graders and families,

My name is Laurie Aaronson and I am excited to be joining the ESTEM comminuty as a full-time teacher.  I had the honor last spring as being a long term and building sub when some students retunred to the building last April 2021.  

In 2019 to develop and build a business--learning centers that teach kids ages 5-17 STEM (robotcis, coding, science, engeineering and more).  We opened our doors in Jan 2020 and the woild shut down 53 days later...Running a business that last 18+ month has taught me resilence, grit and perseverence and that I love working with kids.

Prior to 2019, I had been a classroom middle and high school math teacher (middle school is my favorite) and STEM specialist for K-8 students since 2005.  I did my student teaching in Rustenburg, South Africa.

I have coached varsity soccer, fast-pitch and lacrosse over the last 20 years as well.  I am originally from South Central LA (5th generation and 26 years), and have been in MN now for 23 years.

I look forward to working with all of you, students and families
