Shane Knight





In 1997 Shane Knight began his career serving students in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas where he taught students with Special Needs. He has taught in Texas, California and Missouri and has served as a school principal in Kansas, Missouri and Colorado.  Mr. Knight served as the leader of Knapp Elementary School in southwest Denver for nine years before transitioning to Bear Valley International School in Spring 2022.  Mr. Knight’s beliefs about education are best illustrated in a quote by Haim Ginot: “To reach a child’s mind one must first capture his heart; only if he feels right can he think right.”  When we ensure students know that they are well cared for, we see them develop the social, emotional and academic skills they need to live well-fulfilled lives.
Shane enjoys spending time in the outdoors with his wife, son and daughter.  When not working they spend all their available time on the soccer field, scorching mountain bike trails, or skiing and boarding in Colorado’s wondrous mountains.
