Amy brings to Rio Grande School a strong background in education. In Texas she taught in public and highly regarded independent schools. Amy earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education and her Master of Arts degree in Educational Administration. The first six years of her teaching career she taught Pre-K, and the next 24 years Kindergarten through 2nd grade. Her reputation as an outstanding educator was acknowledged with an academic leadership position supporting Kindergarten through 5th grade educators to provide strategies to increase student engagement and improve student achievement.
Amy is excited to move to Santa Fe with her husband this coming summer and join RGS. Amy says she “understands independent school cultures and cherishes the opportunity to bring her experiences to RGS.” She adds, “RGS is a place where children are honored and learning is held at high level.”
