Dr. Analee Maestas Becomes 'Master' Board Member
The vice president of the APS Board of Education received the honor from the NM School Boards Association.
Albuquerque Public Schools Board Member Dr. Analee Maestas recently was recognized by the New Mexico School Boards Association as a Master Board Member.
Maestas joins Dr. David Peercy as one of only a few dozen board members statewide who have been honored with the recognition.
Maestas who has served on the board since 2011 said of the experience, “It was a wonderful opportunity for professional development and I encourage every Board Member to participate in the program.”
The New Mexico School Boards Association developed the Master Board Member Program to develop a group of school board members who could mentor and teach other board members from across the state. Both Maestas and Peercy had to participate in 36 hours of professional development, complete advanced curriculum classes including classes on finance, legal issues, legislative issues and boardsmanship, and participate in a practicum experience.
Maestas currently serves as the vice president and chair of the APS Board’s Audit Committee and is very active throughout the district including District 1, which she represents.
