Aaron was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. After attending the University of Colorado at Boulder for undergrad and his first master’s in Latin, in 2005 he started teaching Latin in Colorado and for schools across the United States. After teaching Latin to high school and college students for five years, he moved to Boston, Massachusetts, to attend the master’s program in English at Boston College. He stayed out in New England for four years and worked for an academic publisher until the siren’s song of education called him back to the classroom. He taught IB Diploma Program English for two years in an IB world school in Mexico City before coming back to the States to work at the Verde Valley School in 2016.
When not teaching, Aaron enjoys hiking, camping, and going out on the occasional drive around the city or local landscape. He also frequents local poetry readings and other literary events and helps his friends and family self-publish their own literature. His passion is the stories and voices of the people in the community around him.
