Principal's Guide to Learning Zones, Final Installment

In her weekly message, Supt. Reedy introduces a video featuring Zone 2 Principal Amy Mahr of Jimmy Carter Middle School.

I would like to begin the second semester by thanking everyone who has taken the time to learn as much as possible about the district’s transformation via the Learning Zones. Your enthusiasm, curiosity and commitment to creating better academic outcomes for our students are exactly what we’re looking for.
So far, in our Principal’s Guide to the Learning Zone video series, you have heard from LZ4 in the Northeast Heights, LZ3 in the Northwest quadrant of our city and LZ1 in Southeast Albuquerque along Route 66. For the final installment of the series, we’re going to visit LZ2 in the Southwest part of town.
The biggest high school in New Mexico, Atrisco Heritage Academy, sits at the farthest west point of our urban-suburban-rural school district in LZ2. You’ll also find some of our more established middle, high and elementary schools in this culturally rich segment of our city.
Amy Mahr is the Principal of Jimmy Carter Middle School in LZ2. Principal Mahr has been an educator for decades, serving as both a teacher and administrator in just about every zone in the district. We recently sat down with Principal Mahr to hear how the Learning Zone model is benefiting her school.
Special thanks to Principal Mahr and every teacher and administrator in Albuquerque Public Schools who continues to provide us the feedback we need to tweak the Learning Zones concept, so our students don’t miss an opportunity.
