Ms. Amy Poitra
Hello American Indian Magnet School Students, Families and Community Members,
My name is Amy Poitra. My pronouns are she/her/hers and I’m an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa. I’m incredibly excited to join your amazing community as the new Assistant Principal. This is my 12th year in education. I have taught in many different roles, such as; 7th grade science teacher, KG teacher, 4th grade teacher and a reading intervention teacher. Most recently I was the Learning Lead at Mississippi Creative Arts before joining AIMS.
I have a strong passion for creating spaces that are inclusive for ALL students. I strongly believe that our students learn best when they can show up as their true selves. I lead with a strong Equity lens through race, language and gender. I’m excited to grow as a community with all of you. I look forward to building strong relationships with our students, staff, families and community members. I should also mention that I’m a huge fan of laughter and bringing smiles to people’s faces. I’m a crazy-loving aunt and a fur mom to my Shiba Inu, Toshie.
Leading with Kindness,
