Welcome Snow College's New CE Director, Petra Brittner!
Petra Brittner is Snow College’s new Concurrent Enrollment (CE) Director. She accepted this position after having served as CE Advisor for nearly seven years. Before joining Snow College in 2016, Petra was a high school counselor in the Salt Lake City area where she worked in partnership with Snow College’s CE program. Petra enjoyed being a K-12 educator in Texas where she was a teacher, counselor, educational diagnostician, and administrator. She was appointed to the Texas Education Agency in 2008 to build a state-wide infrastructure for the Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS). Petra loves making a positive difference in students’ lives, as she herself has faced many challenges before realizing success. Her can-do attitude along with her positive personality and her unwavering commitment to Snow College, will contribute to the best educational outcomes for our students. Petra hopes to increase CE enrollment from traditionally underserved students, improve learning outcomes for all students through effective advising, and re-kindle the collaborative relationships with all our partners.
Petra promotes the advancement of CE state-wide and nationally. She serves as the Chair for Special Projects with the Utah Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (UACEP) and assists the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) with their accreditation process. Petra has helped our CE program to be accredited through NACEP. She teaches GNST 1004, College Prep and Survival and treasures that interaction with students.
Petra holds a Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree from the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor, Texas and earned numerous Ed. Certifications including Counselor and Principal in the states of Utah, Texas, and Washington. She enjoys being an expert peer reviewer with the U.S. Department of Education outside of her commitment to Snow College. She adores her two adult children and daughter-in-law who hold advanced degrees from Utah universities and work as High School teachers and as Chemist. Her four grandchildren and her garden bring her much joy. She is a member of the Wasatch Mountain Club where she served on the Board of Directors in various positions.
