The Albuquerque Public Schools has named new principals at two middle schools for the 2012-13 school year.
Ed Bortot, currently an assistant principal at Manzano High School, has been named principal at Kennedy Middle School. Bortot replaces Barbara Williamson, who is retiring.
Holly Beiler Gurule, currently an assistant principal for the Career Enrichment Center, has been named principal at John Adams Middle School. Gurule replaces Dante Tuton, who also will be retiring.
Bortot has been an assistant principal at Manzano since 2008. He also served as both the coordinator and a teacher for the MHS AVID program.
Before going to Manzano, Bortot spent a year at the New Mexico Public Education Department and was an elementary school principal and high school assistant principal in Gallup. He started his career as a fifth grade and special education teacher.
Gurule moved to the Career Enrichment Center last fall after spending seven years as an assistant principal for curriculum and smaller learning communities at West Mesa and Albuquerque high schools. She also served as a summer school principal, a grant project manager and technology teacher. She began her career as a teacher at New Futures High School.
“We believe Mr. Bortot and Ms. Gurule will serve their schools and communities well, and we wish them the best in the 2012-2013 school year,” said APS Superintendent Winston Brooks.
