Roland Shaw





Roland Shaw is the proud Principal of CEC Early College! Roland joined CEC in the 2019-2020 school year and brings experience as a former Special Education Teacher (Manual HS), Assistant Principal (Bruce Randolph HS), and Principal Resident (CEC EC). His aim in education is to ensure that each student is supported in achieving their dreams; “I am humbled to be able to support our wonderful educators, as together, we have the privilege of walking with our amazing students on their individual and collective paths to actualizing career and college success.”
Roland grew up in Placitas, NM and remembers his own educational journey as an intense roller coaster with extreme highs and lows. As a middle school student Roland‘s dyslexia prevented him from reading at or even near grade level. As an educator he seeks to ensure that each student has the individualized support they need to pursue their passions and gain the knowledge and skills necessary to overcome any obstacles on their path to career and college success.
When not at CEC, Roland enjoys spending time with his friends and family (Elizabeth, Henry, and Bartlet), being outside doing just about anything, cheering on the Denver Broncos, woodworking, listening to audiobooks, and generally exploring that which was previously unknown.
