Staff Scene: Aaron Weigert

Aaron Weigert, site coordinator

The new school year is bringing new opportunities to Aaron Wiegert. This fall, in addition to being a mentor, he’s taking on the role of site coordinator. “I’ve been emailing my mentors and everybody’s so excited to get started,” he says, adding that what he’s looking forward to most is interacting with the students. “I just love seeing the kids’ perspectives, how they see the world. I love their curiosity and I think that makes them much more productive members of society. It’s really a privilege to meet with them and let them know you’re there for them and everything’s going to be OK. Even when things are going wrong, you can let them know it’s not always going to be this way.” Aaron is coordinating Power Read at Willard Elementary School this year.
