The Pirateer

Adviser Ms. Shotts enjoys time in the mountains

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 27 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.
