As chief operations officer, he oversaw the non-academic operations of the district including facilities design, construction and maintenance; capital master plan; food services; school police and transportation.

Dr. Winter is a New Mexico native who graduated from APS’ Bandelier Elementary, Wilson Middle School and Highland High. Following an All-America career as a pole vaulter at the University of Oklahoma, he began his career in education as an instructor and track coach at New Mexico Junior College in Hobbs. He earned his master’s and doctorate degrees from the University of New Mexico and began his career with APS as a teacher at Sandia High School in 1992.

Dr. Winter is currently serving his fourth term on the Albuquerque City Council representing District 4.  He is the longest serving seated councilor and was City Council President in 2001, 2002, 2005, and 2008.
