Joey Andrew, President

Joey Andrew is a 5th generation resident of Steamboat Springs. He received a BA from the University of Denver in International Studies and History after having lived, worked and studied in Vienna Austria and Tirana Albania. Though travel is in his blood, the Yampa Valley curse beckoned him to return home where he is currently employed as the Director of Operations for Raindrop Water. As a former substitute teacher at SSSD and North Routt Community Charter School, Joey enjoyed teaching his favorite subjects: World & American History, Economics, Geography and International Studies. Joey strongly believes in teaching students self-advocacy and the need to educate local youth to not only be successful in secondary education but also adulthood and everything that entails.
