To The Daily Sun,
I couldn't be more pleased to learn that Aaron Hayward is running for Laconia Ward 3 School Board representative. Aaron is a very knowledgeable young man, and has the demeanor to work cooperatively with all stake holders regarding the educational direction for the City of Laconia.
Aaron is a graduate of Gilford High School. His post-secondary educational experience earned him two degrees from Dartmouth College; a BA and BS in chemical engineering. In addition, Aaron has a master's in educational leadership from Plymouth State College.
After college, Aaron worked with his grandfather, Gerard Morin, taking multiple management roles for Star Specialty Knitting, a manufacturing firm located in the former Laconia Shoe Building in Normandin Square. His tenure with Star provided him with a solid understanding of the importance, as well as challenges, faced by small business.
Aaron later turned his attention to the teaching profession. He became certified to teach math and later science via the alternative certification process. For the past 17 years, he has been teaching chemistry and physics at Belmont High School as well as coaching cross country and track. As a classroom teacher, Aaron has been a national presenter on the topics of curriculum, instruction and assessment as well as being nominated as science teacher of the year for the State of New Hampshire.
Aaron has taken leadership roles at the building level, such as department curriculum coordinator and division leader, and contributed to District Strategic Planning on the Steering Committee.
Aaron is the perfect candidate to be elected to the School Board. Being the father of two young children that attend Pleasant Street School, he believes in transparency, data-driven decision making, and the need to provide a quality education for all children. His understanding of educational philosophy and policy gives him the foundation to be an effective communicator between the school system and his constituents, while helping support a community-based vision and appropriate oversight for Laconia.
Please consider electing Aaron Hayward for Ward 3 School Board representative.
