Interim Principal Named at Jimmy Carter Mid-School

Amy Mahr brings 15 years of experience to the post.

Albuquerque Public Schools has named Amy Mahr to serve as interim principal at Jimmy Carter Middle School for the remainder of the school year.

“Jimmy Carter is one of our larger middle schools, and I’m confident that Ms. Mahr will bring strong leadership and experience to the school as we head into the last five weeks of the school year,” APS Superintendent Winston Brooks said.

Mahr has spent the past seven years as an assistant principal at Desert Ridge and, most recently, Ernie Pyle middle schools. She also has taught language arts and social studies at Washington Middle School. She has worked for APS for 15 years.

Mahr holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of New Mexico.

Mahr takes over the day-to-day operation of the school while the investigation continues into allegations against the school’s principal and dean of students.
