Nancy Dickerson Shaw is serving her first term as a Director from Southwest Colorado. She also serves as Vice-Chairperson of the San Juan UniServ Unit and President of the Education Association of Cortez.
Early in her career, Nancy worked as an intern in the U.S. Congress and realized public education is not just delivered by a teacher in a classroom but is influenced by laws passed by non-teachers. She has dedicated her life advocating for students and educators.
Throughout her professional years, Nancy has provided after school opportunities for all students by organizing a ski/snowboard program for many years, and taking students to space camp in Florida. In 2000 she was named semifinalist for Colorado Teacher of the Year. She has taught all ages and is presently teaching third grade.
Nancy received her undergraduate and Master of Science degrees with honors from the University of Southern California. She is married to Gary and they have one son, Garan.
