        Andi Rankin joined the wonderful ESS family at Monument Academy in 2016.  She graduated from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs in 2005 with a double major in English literature and performing arts.  After college, she moved to New York City to pursue her love of acting, attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and the Alvin Ailey school of dance.  Life as a struggling artist is difficult and seven years later she discovered her passion in teaching young students with special needs.  Andi returned to her home town of Monument, Colorado in 2014 with her born and bred New Jersey husband, Eric.  The call of the mountains and family had become too great!  Andi enjoys exploring the great outdoors, snowshoeing, hiking, and biking with her friends and family.  A little couch time with her hubby and two lazy cats isn’t too shabby either!
