Shantel Weinsheimer and her husband, Grant, made Burlingame their home after a six-year stint in Copenhagen, Denmark. Having already spent a few years living in San Francisco prior to moving abroad, they decided to make their way back to the Bay Area in 2018.
Having her children attend school in Scandinavia gave Shantel a huge appreciation for what it means to have a well-rounded education. “While we lived abroad my children experienced the joys of an education system that included a variety of programs that were offered to every student, and went above and beyond the core curriculum,” said Shantel. “I serve on the BCE Board now to ensure that all of our students receive the education they deserve.”
The busy working mom of three kids, Maya, an eighth grader at BIS, Finn, a third grader at Roosevelt, and Liam, a Kindergartner at Roosevelt, spends her days as an assistant professor at the University of California, San Francisco, in the Center for Cerebrovascular Research. In addition to being Roosevelt’s new BCE site director, she is also an active volunteer with the school’s PTA.
In her spare time, this Otterbein University alum enjoys photography, writing, and doing puzzles. She also plays the lottery once a week and, fun fact, was struck by lighting at age 16!
