My name is Shane Ward and I will be teaching U.S. History and Civics for the 2017-2018 school year and will also be an assistant football coach. This will be my 13th year teaching. I have taught Social Studies and Physical Education. I am originally from Farmington New Mexico, which is where I also began my teaching and coaching career. I have also taught and coached at Rock Canyon High School in Douglas County and was most recently teaching and coaching at Gateway High School here in Aurora.
Outside of teaching and coaching I enjoy spending time with my wife and our son Grady. I also enjoy weight lifting and I compete in the Scottish Highland Games following my Gaelic heritage.
I am excited to be a part of the Vista Peak family and GO BISON!!
