Hi....I'm happy to be one of the skilled drivers for Anshor Driving School. I have been associated with education and/or coaching since graduating from the University of Wyoming in 1992. I currently teach Physical Education at the elementary level, but have taught students up through high school. My teaching endeavors have taken me from Guam to Arizona, and now back closer to "home" here in Colorado, where I hope to reside for many years to come. When I am not teaching school or teaching safe and proper driving skills to students, I can be found chasing fish about in various local waters. I have been married for almost a quarter of a century to my wonderful wife Kathy. We have 2 school aged children, our son is currently going through Anshor Driving School and our daughter will undoubtedly be an Anshor student sometime in the future.

I have started my 4th year with Anshor Driving School. I have great experience having completed almost 900 drives with students so far. Even with 30 years experience as a teacher/coach I still enjoy the diversity of the drivers I instruct. Like Forrest Gump said " You never know what you'll get." I say, " no two are the same." Safety always comes first, if either you or I have concerns about the weather or road conditions, it's usually best to reschedule. This gets the most out of your time with me. The thing I like best about my job is the students' reaction when they realize parallel parking is much easier than they thought it would be.

I moved to Colorado when I was 5 and lived on a ranch east of Sugar City, Colorado. I Graduated from Otero Junior College with an Associate Arts Degree and then the University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelors and later a Masters Degree. While I was in the Greeley area with the school district I also taught Driver's Education. I've spent 28 years in educational administration and teaching in various school districts and have coached for 40 years and continue to coach. I now live in Rocky Ford, CO in the same Arkansas Valley that I grew up in. My hobbies include coaching and model trains.

Roxanne Torres

Roxanne Torres- Greeley

Hello! My name is Roxanne Torres, I was born and raised in El Paso Texas. I currently live in Greeley, and it’s been my home for the last 6 years. Most of my family lives back in Texas so my loved ones in Colorado are my boyfriend and my cat Lindy who I love dearly. Some of my hobbies include reading, dancing/ listening to music, and traveling; I also love the outdoors and look forward to camping, hiking, and lake days every year. It has to be my favorite thing about Colorado! I’ve been working at Anshor for about 2 years and couldn’t ask for a better work family. Thanks to the amazing work-life balance that my job allows me I’ve been able to travel more and experience different places like I always wanted to. Being a driving instructor can be very rewarding, individuals give me the opportunity and trust to help them get over any doubt or fear they might have to get behind the wheel, and the same person who walked in extremely nervous leaves as a better and confident driver, and for that I am proud to be a part of Anshor.

Residing in Loveland with my wife and two beloved dogs, I've dedicated the past 17 years to teaching and training drivers in the vibrant community of Fort Collins. When I'm not behind the wheel, you can find me indulging in my passions for camping, fishing, driving horses, and playing pool. Anshor holds a special place in my heart, not only for the opportunity to guide young drivers towards excellence but also for the joy of teaching my own granddaughter. There's nothing quite like witnessing their growth and confidence behind the wheel.

I've lived in Colorado most of my life, starting in Longmont, then Thornton, and now Greeley. My family is split between Greeley and Texas, with six grandchildren, three in each location. My loyal companion is Herbert, my 220-pound English Mastiff. Professionally, I've spent 15 years in transportation, driving big rigs and teaching.

Seeing their progress from the first lesson to passing their test is incredibly rewarding.

I'm a Boulder native and retired music teacher of 37 years, now living in Ordway for the past 34 years as a widower with two children and a 20-year-old grandson. While I love dogs and aquarium fish, my passion for travel keeps me pet-free, though I enjoy dogsitting my son's beagle.

My teaching career started in Haxtun and led me to Crowley County School District, where I fell in love with rural communities. Specializing in instrumental and vocal music, I also taught guitar and led a student leadership class similar to student council. During my career, I served as National President of the American School Band Directors Association and President of the Colorado Music Educators Association.

Retirement has allowed me to focus on my musical roots, primarily as a trumpet player performing with local bands. Joining Anshor allows me to serve the lower Arkansas Valley community by offering driving training and testing services, fulfilling my passion for teaching and community service.
