'Cille (pronounced "seal") is the office admin at our Longmont campus. A lifelong resident of Colorado, she is happiest playing in the mountains. An avid musician, she'll try and play anything that's small enough to fit in a backpack and take out on the trail: flutes, whistles, melodicas, ukuleles, concertinas, and of course the occasional finger cymbals. When not making music or riding bikes and boards in the mountains, she can be found hanging out (usually in the kitchen) with her husband, son, pets, friends, and family.
I'm a Fort Collins native and I've been driving for 26 years. I enjoy playing hockey, camping, paddle boarding and riding my Harley during my spare time. I take great pride and joy in teaching and instructing students of all ages on how to drive and to improve upon the skills they may already have. To quote my late Grandpa Walsh: "Drive Nice!"

She moved to Colorado in 1980. When Theresa is off she loves spending time with her daughter, doing dinner shows, and playing with her 2 dogs and 2 cats.

I was a school teacher and coach for St. Vrain Valley School District for 33 years. I retired in 2010 and started doing Drivers Education for the school district. In 2019 the school district dropped Drivers Ed, and I was then hired by MSDE. I'm certified by the State of Colorado to teach classes and do drive tests for people trying to get their license. I've been married to my wife for 43 years. I enjoy hunting, golfing, and photography.
Former law enforcement and emergency communications supervisor, I am now the Operations Supervisor for City of Greeley Mobility Services. I have experience in traffic accident investigations, motor vehicle law enforcement, and safely operating motor vehicles up to a 40' transit bus. I am certified as a Defense Driving Instructor for Municipal Vehicles and Transit Operators, and hold a certificate for Traffic Incident Management. I enjoy serving in my church with my wife, playing golf, and nature photography.
I'm a Colorado native born and raised. I enjoy spending my free time with my family, friends, and my two "little brat" dogs Luna and Peaches. If I'm not with them you can usually find me playing disc golf or softball in my free time. I look forward to my future with Mountain States driver education, and the opportunity to guide our youth to accomplishing their goal of obtaining their license.
Cameron was born in Loveland but recently returned home from living in Southern California for the past 10 years (please Don't hold it against him.) He has a passion for instructing and teaching young people, having been an instructor in a wide variety of activities including kayaking, chess, improv, and boxing. Fun Fact: Cameron used to be a knight at a dinner theatre riding horseback and performing stunts in front of a live audience. Huzzah! He loves talking about the joys and responsibilities of driving and owning a car with his students and pointing out all the silly custom license plates and bumper stickers. P.S. he might treat you to a donut or coffee on a drive if you know how to ask questions. Cam asks that you show up ready to have fun and don't be nervous! If you were born just a hundred years ago you would never get a car to drive and would only have a donkey..
