Steve and his wife are proud to have called southwest Colorado their home for almost 30 years. Their son is in his sophomore year of high school. As a graduate of Fort Lewis College, Steve began his career in education in 1998 as a teacher. Since then Steve's educational journey has included the opportunity to continue to teach, support educators, and serve in administrative leadership. For the past 14 years, he has been with the San Juan BOCES serving the districts of Southwest Colorado. The Southwest Colorado eSchools partnership with San Juan BOCES is a shining example of when schools and communities come together to address a need. Working with and for the communities of southwest Colorado is a passion for Steve. In his free time, Steve enjoys being outside in just about every way possible.
