We are thrilled to announce that Amy Wintermeyer has joined our team as Director of School Programming based in Dallas, TX! Amy started with AC as a part-time consultant in August 2022, and has been working to support schools by leading dashboard readouts and school presentations. Moving forward, as Amy shifts into a full-time role, she will continue to be a primary resource for schools as they partner with AC, and will be involved in synthesizing survey results, presenting at conferences, and expanding the reach and work of Authentic Connections around the U.S. and abroad.
Amy is a career educator who has worked in public and private schools across the country. She completed both her undergraduate degree in French and received her teaching credential at Wellesley College; she later completed her Masters in Education at Harvard University. Amy taught Middle and Upper School for nine years and has held a number of leadership positions in schools, including Director of College Counseling, Head of Upper School, and Assistant Head of School for Student Experience.
“It has been such an honor to join the AC team and partner with schools around the world in the work of student and educator mental health and well being! Given my work in schools, I understand all too well the challenges that school leaders are facing, in particular around academic and college pressure, educator burnout, and the ways in which relationships and school climate can impact well being. I’m excited to use my experience to help schools both interpret their survey results and create programming that will ultimately improve the experiences of students and educators worldwide.”
When asked about adding Amy to the team, Nina Kumar, CEO, said, “I’m thrilled that Amy has joined our team. Throughout the last year, Amy has been an incredibly valuable resource for schools as they worked to make sense of their survey findings. I know that Amy’s depth of knowledge will help us further refine our programs and offerings to best support schools!”
