Volunteer Spotlight – Chris Roland

We are excited to introduce one of our newest volunteers: Chris Roland. Chris volunteers as a tutor in the Library’s English Language Learners program.

Chris was born and raised in Iowa and Wisconsin. He has a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a double minor in philosophy and Italian studies. After spending time abroad, Chris earned his master’s degree in Counseling and Career Development from CSU then moved to Estes Park this past July where he works as a school counselor at Estes Park High School.

Chris loves learning foreign languages and has traveled extensively. In college, he studied in Florence, Italy, then after graduation returned for a year to Padova, near Venice, to work as an au-pair for an Italian family.

In his free time, Chris enjoys running, listening to vinyl records and teaching his dog Cooper unique tricks, like sneezing when he says “Bless you”!

Chris says: “I really appreciate having the opportunity to volunteer with families from different backgrounds than mine. I always view a teaching/tutoring experience as an opportunity to learn from those I’m working with. I am constantly humbled to have the opportunity to hear other individuals’ life experiences and what they have had to overcome. There is a great privilege in being an audience member to someone’s life-design.”

And it is truly our great privilege having you as part of the Library team! Thank you Chris!
