Originally from Manassas, Virginia, Aaron Pritchard received his Bachelor’s degree in education from East Tennessee State University. He has taught students ranging from Kindergarten to 6th grade and is very excited to be teaching 4th grade at Ad Fontes Academy. Believing that “leaders are readers and readers are leaders,” he is an avid reader to help him grow as a person and educator, and he inspires his students to love reading as well. In his spare time, he enjoys singing, exercising, and playing basketball, and is a devoted Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee Volunteers fan. He is newly married to AFA’s music teacher, Mrs. Laura Pritchard, and he loves coming to work alongside his lovely wife each day. He aims to create every day a safe and caring environment that supports teamwork, creativity, and problem solving. His great joy is to mentor his students and watch as God’s love shapes them throughout the year.
