My name is Mr. Aurand and I am excited to be your third grade teacher for the 2021-2022 school year. This is my ninth year as a classroom teacher and my seventh year at Kenston Local Schools. This is my fifth year teaching third grade at Kenston and for two years I taught fourth grade math and science at Kenston Intermediate School. Prior to that I spent two years at Maple Heights City Schools teaching second and third grade. I spent an additional year at Maple Heights as a kindergarten and first grade reading tutor.
I received my bachelors in early childhood education from Kent State University and my masters in elementary education from the University of Akron. I also received my fourth and fifth grade teaching endorsement from Ohio University. I grew up near by in the City of Hudson where I was actively involved in several team sports. I look forward to learning all about my students throughout the school year!
