Montana Fels


    I was born and raised in Boulder, CO- I went to Flatirons Elementary, Platt Middle School, and Boulder High School. I received my undergraduate degree from CU Boulder and my masters in school counseling from CU Denver. I also hold an LPCC licensure (Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate) and I am a Nationally Certified Counselor.  I began my career in BVSD as a high school coach and a paraeducator.  I began at Bear Creek in the 2019-2020 school year and I am thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful school and community!  In high school I was an avid ski racer and lacrosse player. This fostered my passion and love for the outdoors and everything Colorado has to offer. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and my three year old golden retriever, Cooper. I also enjoy skiing, hiking, cooking, and watching movies!

    As a school counselor, I strive to optimize student success in their academic, personal, and career planning. I believe that counseling is very similar to teaching, coaching, and mentoring. It is my job to guide students, parents and teachers as they navigate the rigors of school and life. In both my professional and personal life I have always lived by one simple quote: "Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose".
