About Our Driving School
Since 1994, we have been providing professional driver education services in Northeastern Colorado.
Duane Anderson is president of Anshor Driving School. Grew up in Denver CO. and attended Ranum High School. He attended Adams State College in Alamosa, CO on a full ride scholarship for football. After Graduation, and teaching 2 years in Del Norte, he became the Driver's Education instructor for Greeley School District 6 at both Greeley West and Greeley Central for eight years. Once the district dropped Drivers Education from the curriculum, he founded Anshor Driving School with partner Jerry Short in the fall of 1994.

I am a transplant from Minnesota and have lived in Colorado for over 25 years. I graduated from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota with an Accounting degree. After moving to Colorado, I have had quite a varied career - Auditor for the Dept. of Defense, small business owner, full time mom, and Substitute Teacher in Windsor. I have three grown children. Along with being the Manager at Anshor, I also teach Behind the Wheel lessons and administer drive tests.
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 am a Greeley native. My husband and I have been married for 32 years. We have two beautiful daughters and five grandchildren. I currently hold a CDL license. I worked for School District Six twelve years. I trained new and veteran drivers for urban and mountain trips.The lessons included: how to maneuver a bus in downtown Denver, how to parallel park a 40' school bus in Denver, and how to back a bus down a one-lane mountain canyon. I graduated from Aims with an Associate of Arts Liberal degree. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Anshor professionals to pass on safe driving skills to our youth.

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.
I am a student at UNC studying Elementary Education with an emphasis in Mathematics. I am in the final semester of my program and am currently student teaching in Briggsdale. I love having the opportunity to teach safe driving habits and the rules of the roads we all share at Anshor. Outside of teaching, I enjoy lifting weights, reading mystery novels, hiking, cooking, working on wood-burning projects, and watching Star Wars movies.
