Theresa Linne

Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Theresa relocated to Colorado in 2006 to enjoy the 300+ days of sunshine and mountain lifestyle. Theresa earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Colorado (Denver), specializing in Human Resources. Currently, Theresa works as the Director of Human Resources for a global data analytics firm. In her free time, she enjoys yoga, HIIT workouts, and volunteering for local animal welfare organizations.

Theresa and her husband share one daughter, who started preschool at SVA in 2014 and is currently attending middle school. Having experienced the amazing staff and culture at SkyView, Theresa joined the SVA Board of Directors in 2021 and is currently serving as Vice President. Being a board member has been a remarkable learning opportunity and privilege, one that has allowed her to gain an in-depth understanding of the dedication that every faculty member pours into SVA to make our school so exceptional. It is truly an honor to be a parent and contributing member of the SkyView community.

Shannon Cosart

As an undergraduate student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I realized my passion for helping young people grow, mature, and develop. Because of this passion, I earned a bachelor's degree in elementary education. After teaching Kindergarten and First Grade, I later attended Wake Forest University and earned an MBA in finance. This unique blend of teaching and business education will allow me to add a valuable perspective to the Board of Directors.

On a personal note, I am the proud father of three boys who have all attended SkyView Academy since kindergarten. My wife, Kristi, and I have supported SVA in various roles for the past 12 years. Professionally, I am Director of Strategic Sourcing at an SAP 500 real estate company. After obtaining my MBA from Wake Forrest, I spent the majority of my career at IBM in finance before transitioning to my current role.

Growing up, I moved quite a bit, attending eight different schools from kindergarten to my senior year in high school. My experience in attending many different schools has helped me to identify and appreciate a truly special institution like SkyView. I understand that SkyView isn’t perfect, but it has a culture that has enabled our children to thrive in elementary, middle, and high school. I want to support the administration, staff, and teachers, providing them with the tools they need to best care for students at SkyView Academy.
