Shelly Green Named APS Chief Academic Officer

Educator officially has the ‘interim’ tag removed from her title.

Albuquerque Public Schools has named Shelly Green as the district’s Chief Academic Officer. She had held the position on an interim basis since the school year began last August.

“As I said last summer, Shelly has been tasked with the job of improving academic opportunities for our students and closing the achievement gap so all students have the same chances to succeed,” APS Superintendent Winston Brooks said. “Shelly has shown during the past few months that she is the right person to lead that charge.”

Green had served as principal at Volcano Vista High School for a year when she was tapped to succeed Linda Sink, who retired after more than 30 years in education.

Green began her career in education nearly 25 years ago with New Mexico Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) as a summer programs assistant and student advisor. She also was a teacher at Rio Grande and Highland high schools and acting activities director for the Hornets before she became an administrator.

She served as an assistant principal at Highland for three years and at La Cueva for more than a decade before moving to Volcano Vista. She has spent years developing and implementing master schedules, overseeing grade reporting and transcripts, implementing policies and procedures to support students and district initiatives, analyzing budgets, implementing strong academic programs and reaching out to parents and community members.

“I am passionate about education and the opportunities it provides to all our young people,” Green said. “I believe the work our teachers do every day in classrooms across the city improve the lives of our students. I appreciate the opportunity to serve as Chief Academic Officer so that I can help our schools across the district continue to do the work they’re doing for our students.”
