Bernalillo Public Schools

Bernalillo Public Schools is made up of (10) schools. One Pre-School (La Escuelita), one high school, three middle schools and six elementary schools. The total enrollment for the district is 2787. We have Bilingual programs with Spanish and Keres classes and special education programs. With the surrounding Tribal communities, it is important that we bring the culture into our schools.

The FoodCorps Service Members at Bernalillo Public Schools provide lessons on healthy eating, start/maintain the school garden, and work with the communities that surround the school. There is the possibility of cooking meals with the students. The district works closely with the surrounding communities and would like for the service members to give updates on how they are working within the schools and find ways the communities can help. Service members at Bernalillo Public Schools are asked to have knowledge of the students represented by the district (Hispanic, Native American), have worked with farming and/or gardening, work well with students and different grade levels, be willing to present at meetings within the district, and attend district training as needed.

The FoodCorps service members at Bernalillo Public Schools is a part of the New Mexico cohort that includes 10 service members across 8 different service sites. Service sites in New Mexico are located in what has come to be known as the cities of Santa Fe, Bernalillo, Albuquerque, Las Cruces, and Anthony. We acknowledge and seek to continually honor that all land within the present borders of New Mexico were originally entrusted and stewarded by Indigenous Peoples. Through a journey of cultural humility, we serve at each site with the knowledge that each of these geographical and cultural boundaries have been constructed as a result of unjust historical events. New Mexico prides itself on our population, which consists of a majority of People of Color, and the deep well of cultural assets each ethnic group adds to our communities. As a result of racist ideologies and concurrent policies that have systematically marginalized these populations, New Mexico currently has the lowest quality of life for children and some of the highest hunger and poverty rates in the nation. With this historical pretext and a systems change approach as the foundation, service members will engage with children, families and communities to offer food education through a decolonial, equitable, anti-racist lens with support from site supervisors, community, and state staff.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Knowledge of the students represented by the district (Hispanic, Native American)
  • Have worked with farming and/or gardening
  • Works well with students and different grade levels
  • Willing to present at meetings within the district and attending district training as needed
