Devin Scannell

Wrangler

CMR staff since 2007

Devin, our beloved corral queen and horse focus instructor, teaches during the school year and spends her summers at the Ranch.With her Master’s degree in Special Education from the University of Northern Colorado, she is a full-time teacher in the St. Vrain Valley School District. She likes to stay busy in the winter skijoring (being pulled behind a dog on cross country skis) with her dog, Bella.

Devin’s plan to make the world a better place is “to live each day to its fullest, create art, and try to make life happier for the people and animals around me.”

Devin wants to let you know that “While there’s a lot to be learned in school, as a teacher I realize that sometimes, what kids learn outside of the classroom is even more important than what they can learn within the confines of a classroom. As technology encroaches on more and more areas in our lives and schools, nature becomes increasingly more important. A chance to disconnect and play is important to everyone, whether adult or child.”
