Karla Shotts-Adviser
I’m Karla Shotts, your Pirateer adviser! I grew up in Boulder, Co. the most beautiful city in the world (to me). I have two children. We spend a lot of time outside. We love to hike, camp, and ski.

I have spent 26 years in the Broadcast/Journalism industry. I was a reporter, anchor, producer and News Director. Over the course of my career, I covered huge blizzards, world leaders, education, crime and the military. I have interviewed Presidents and Shimon Peres (Nobel Prize winner).

My career has taken me all over the country:

  • Orlando, Fla.

  • Rapid City, SD

  • Missoula, MT

  • Pocatello, ID

  • Decatur, Ill

  • Colorado Springs, Co

  • Grand Junction, Co

  • Denver, Co

That is a lot of traveling! I have met some of the most amazing people in the world. But now, I’m doing the most important job I have ever had: teaching high school students how to be ethical and effective multi-media journalists.

Karla Shotts, Adviser
