“Like almost every teacher I know, my family had the predominant influence in my decision to go into the teaching profession,” said North Dakota United member and 2014 North Dakota Teacher of the Year (TOY) Aaron Knodel of West Fargo. “Both my parents were teachers in my hometown of Beulah, ND, and both my sister and I followed in their footsteps.” However, this is the simple answer Knodel shares when this ‘small talk’ question is thrown in his direction; in truth, his journey into teaching is rooted in a heartache he rarely discusses. Knodel’s family lived across the street from the high school where his parents taught, and like most boys he adored and worshiped his father. “By all accounts, he was a wonderful teacher, coach, and man,” he said. “On a weekly basis he would take me to the high school gym, and we would play football, make paper airplanes and throw them off the mezzanine, and often shoot hoops.”
