Aaron, an Alabama native, comes to St. Mark from the Center City Public Charter Schools (CCPCS) network in Washington, D.C. where he served for the last four years as assistant principal. A graduate of Alabama State University with a Bachelor of Science and Master of Education in Social Science Education, Aaron began his career as an outstanding classroom teacher in Alabama where he was twice voted runner-up for the state Teacher of the Year award. He also holds a Master of Science in Educational Leadership from Concordia University.

While Aaron very candidly acknowledges that there will be an adjustment period for everyone, his hopes and dreams for how to move forward are what excite him. “It is my hope that St. Mark continues to shine brightly for all students in Harlem. I know that great schools start with great leaders- I am humbled and blessed to have been given this task.” 

The Partnership is excited to welcome Aaron to the school and the entire community.
