Santa Fe Public Schools announced Thursday that Felicia Torres will be the principal at Amy Biehl Community School for the 2019-20 school year. Torres has been Amy Biehl’s interim principal since February and has worked at the school in various roles since it opened in 2010.

At Amy Biehl, Torres has taught third- and fourth-grade students as well as a technology class. She has also worked as an interventionist, student assistance team leader and assistant principal.

The school has students from kindergarten through sixth grade and serves Rancho Viejo and the surrounding neighborhoods.
