Susan Aaron was recently selected as a Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction by The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS). A role model to students, Aaron was nominated for outstanding dedication and commitment to excellence in the classroom.
Each year student members of NSHSS are invited to nominate the educator who has made the most significant contribution to their academic career for the Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction award. This honor recognizes exemplary educators whose passion and devotion inspire their students to grow and develop as scholars, leaders and citizens.
Aaron is beginning her 11th year at Carlisle where she serves as the College Counselor, English Department Chair and Upper School English teacher. She also heads Carlisle’s Italian Exchange Program, Zip Zap Zop theater group and co-directs the Mentoring Program between Upper and Lower School students.
“My favorite part of teaching is inspiring my students to discover themselves through reflection,” Aaron said. But she finds her role of College Counselor to be one of the most rewarding parts of her job.
These students touch my life and become ‘my kids’ each year,” she said. “I have known many since they were in preschool and feel great satisfaction in seeing them gain entrance to the schools they desire to attend the most.”
