CMC 4-Year Teaching Degrees Now Offered in Leadville, Breckenridge and Dillon

CMC Leadville

CMC’s teacher education program is expanding to the college’s campuses at Leadville, Breckenridge and Dillon. KDNK’s Raleigh Burleigh spoke with former director of education Barbara Johnson, who retired shortly after the interview, to learn more. An information session is scheduled at Colorado Mountain College Leadville on Monday, July 30, from 5 to 6pm.

Raleigh Burleigh was raised in the historic floodplanes of Satank. The Carbondale Rotary Club sponsored him as a youth ambassador to Chile the year before his graduation from Roaring Fork High School. He studied International Affairs and Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder then applied those studies traveling throughout South America the following year. Returning to Carbondale thereafter, Raleigh acquired an internship with KDNK News which led to the opportunity to serve as News Director from 2017 to 2019. After another trip to South America in early 2019, Raleigh Burleigh drew deeper into the confluence as Program Director at KDNK. Raleigh now serves on KDNK's board of directors and as editor of Carbondale's weekly newspaper, The Sopris Sun.
