Aaron Sadoff served in the US Army as a cavalry scout after graduating high school in 1990. He earned degrees from UW-Madison and Marian University. In the fall of 1997, he began his career in education as a social studies teacher (psychology and history) in Manitowoc, WI. He taught for the next 9 years in Manitowoc and Fond du Lac, WI, mostly at the high school level. His passion and specialty became helping students learn about psychology. In 2006, he was selected to be middle school principal at Bessie Allen in the School District of North Fond du Lac, where he served for 3 years until becoming the Superintendent for the District, which he has served in for the past 8 years.
His current passion is developing and sustaining a culture of happiness in the School District of North Fond du Lac so that the District can recruit, retain and reward a world class staff, while working to prepare all students to be career, college and life ready. He believes the School District of North Fond du Lac is an example of how the science of happiness and positive psychology can revolutionize the way that organizations are working to best impact success. He is active at the state and federal level advocating for public schools and is fortunate to share his passion for positive psychology through presentations with numerous local, state and national groups.
He has a beautiful wife Kelly (married for 21 years) and three great kids – Paige (18), Lilly (16) and Ethan (12). When not at school, he enjoys working around the home and relaxing with family & friends.
