Sandra L. Montoya-Boswell, Instructional Accountability Office

Sandra L. Montoya-Boswell is retiring after 34 years of devoted service to APS. 

Sandra started her career 34 years ago at the tender age of 20 as a fellowship grad student from the University of New Mexico. Her first teaching assignment was as a first grade teacher at Montezuma Elementary where she worked on curriculum development for reading and math as part of her master's program.

After a one-year stint at Montezuma and Sandia Base elementaries, Sandra moved on to Hubert Humphrey where she spent the next 23 years teaching first grade, second grade and ending her time at Humphrey as a fifth grade teacher in 2006.

In her 25th year as a classroom teacher Sandra decided to share her expertise with aspiring students from the University of New Mexico who wanted to become teachers. As a clinical supervisor with this master's level program, Sandra worked for the next two years as an adjunct faculty member and instructed these aspiring teachers in areas such as Instruction of Curriculum Development, Classroom Management, and Social Justice in Education.

In October 2008 Sandra became the Instructional Coach at Bellehaven Elementary. She supported the teachers and administrators at Bellehaven using a research-based job embedded approach to instructional improvement. Sandra developed a Professional Learning Lab (PLL) where she modeled instructional strategies and classroom management techniques and shared current data models with the staff.  

Sandra maintained her love for the classroom by working as a summer school teacher for grades 3 through 5 at Bellehaven and Alvarado in 2009, 2010 and 2012.

Since August of 2011 Sandra has been working at the district level in the Instructional Accountability Office as a member of the Data and School Support Team (Formerly RDA).  Sandra’s responsibilities include direct support to APS K-12 school administrators and staff in the areas of data generation, data analysis, state and district accountability, and how these are all connected so that we can improve instruction in the classroom for all students.
