Mr. Aldrich is originally from the greater Lansing area and received his bachelor's degree in education from Central Michigan University (Fire Up, Chips!). He also has a master's degree in education from Grand Valley State University. Prior to teaching, he worked in business administration and continues to work alongside his family caring for their reindeer farm. Outside of school, Mr. Aldrich enjoys time with family, college sports, and celebrating Michigan's beautiful outdoors. In addition, he loves travel, reading, and most any type of music. His greatest reason for becoming a teacher is to ensure all students find their purpose and have their voices heard.
