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
