B.A. in Anthropology, Colorado State University
Dr. Michael Pante
I currently am employed as an Education Facilitator at the History Colorado Center, an Instructor of Voice and Piano at the Loveland Academy of Music, as well as a member of the Denver Opera Collective. I facilitate the educational programs of the History Colorado Center in both English and Spanish, teach private voice and piano lessons, and I also perform throughout the front range. My anthropology degree has allowed me to deliver high quality education in a museum setting, and acknowledge different backgrounds while delivering an objective and immersive museum experience for students. My background in Anthropology also allowed me to go on archaeology surveys with the State Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation through the museum. Additionally, my education at Colorado State University has given me the skills to break language and culture barriers, serve organizations, develop professionally as a musician, and maintain the curiosity and desire for life long learning.
Note to Current Students
My most meaningful memory was the first Anthropology course I ever took, Introduction to Cultural Anthropology (ANTH 100), and it forever changed the ways in which a perceive and interpret the world around me. This experience is what sparked the great passion I have for the discipline of Anthropology. Additionally, my studies with Dr. Kent in Human Ecology (ANTH 330) course has inspired me to advocate for a more sustainable and conscious society. Also, Dr. Fisher’s Archaeology of Mesoamerica (ANTH 452) course has provided me with the most fascinating perspectives regarding ancient societies, most notably the fact that complex societies developed before social stratification in the Oaxacan valley.
