Kurt Smith- Greeley
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.
Mike Rosales- Greeley
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.
Eric McRae- Rocky Ford
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.

Amber Baatz- Greeley
I started working with Anshor in 2021. The best thing about teaching students to drive is either complimenting them on how well they have learned to drive or watching the students gain confidence through their 6 hours with me.
Hobbies: playing card games with my family, playing tennis and pickle ball with my family, enjoying the outdoors when the weather is nice, volunteering at church, watching my kids play their sports, taking sport action pictures.
I also teach middle schoolers logic and speech classes. I work at my husband's office in Greeley. I have home schooled my children for 8 years.
Life is full of amazing adventures and wonderful people. Grateful for every student I get to meet and work with.
