Meet Isaiah Pinilla
Isaiah will be joining the faculty at RUHS this year, teaching four sections of American History and co-teaching a Restorative Justice PBL with Co-Principal Elijah Hawkes.
A native of Massachusetts, Isaiah grew up in Wisconsin before enrolling at Syracuse University to study History and Political Science.
Prior to coming to RUHS, Isaiah taught Math in the Claremont, NH and Seattle, WA school systems, and English language in Moscow, Russia. Most recently he was a student teacher at Mascoma Valley Regional High School in Canaan, NH and at the Richmond Middle School in Hanover, NH.
“I am really excited about coming to teach at Randolph Union High School,” he said, “especially after meeting Superintendent Brent Kay and Co-Principal Dave Barnett, both of whom are extremely impressive and inspiring school leaders. During my interview process I found all of the teachers and administration to be extremely high-level professionals with knowledge and experience and open minds. I also had the opportunity to meet and teach some RU students and was really impressed with their poise, intelligence, work-ethic, and desire to learn and grow.”
“More than anything though,” he added, “what I really love about teaching is the interaction I have with students. I find them to be fascinating, funny, and simply a lot of fun to be around. It’s a privilege and a joy to be part of their growth and development, both personally and academically.”
When he’s not teaching, Isaiah enjoys cooking, following the Red Sox and Patriots, photography, fishing, running, hiking, and being outdoors. He especially enjoys spending time with his wife and family.
