Originally from Colorado, Shannon Hall has worked in the early care and education field since 1997, as both a teacher and a director. She holds Master of Science degrees in Organizational Leadership from Colorado State University and Early Childhood Leadership and Advocacy from Erikson Institute. Shannon joined ECCLA in January 2019 after Qualistar Colorado closed its doors. She administers the T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Colorado Scholarship Program and the Family Child Care Home Improvement Grant Initiative throughout the state. It is her belief that an early childhood education of the highest quality is essential to child development, and early childhood educators play a critical role in that. In her free time, Shannon enjoys traveling, reading, movies, and spending time with her family.
