After graduating from St. Mary's School and then Mount Michael Benedictine High School Aaron traveled to Minnesota to attend Saint John's University. While there he earned a degree in English and Secondary Education. He spent his first year out of college working as an editor, and with Artist Relations for Minnesota Public Radio. Since then he's been teaching English, Environmental Science, and Creative Writing at a new charter school in Saint Paul: Upper Mississippi Academy. Aaron says, "Saint Mary's truly set me up for success. By offering me such a personalized education, I always felt at home in the classroom. Each and every teacher knew my strengths and weaknesses, and challenged me daily to improve. Additionally, Saint Mary's taught me to be tolerant of all beliefs--religious or otherwise--a skill which I value above all else."
