When he wasn’t playing sports, he was watching sports. Coach Aaron's favorite thing to do is to be in the ocean. Coach Aaron has been teaching for the last 9 years. He holds a Bachelors of Arts degree in Secondary Education and a Masters of Education in Advanced Teaching and Leadership.

Isabella Perkins

Innovations/Media Center

Isabella Perkins

Izzy’s teaching journey started at a charter school in Sacramento California. She has worked alongside a 6th grade teacher and an art teacher and has spent several summers as a summer camp teacher. This space focused on cultural diversity, environmental stewardship, and self exploration, which she integrates in her developing teaching style. Izzy has expanded on her love of technology and also enjoys teaching remote video game design and esports with an epic STEM program. To have her entire teaching journey circle back to where she found the most comfort in school is such a gift. It is Izzy's honor to cultivate a space for students to learn and grow and she prides herself in creating safe spaces for children to express and discover themselves.
