Linda Reed was named superintendent of Archuleta School District 50 Jt. in August 2013. Prior to that beginning in 2009, she served as the district Assistant Superintendent.
Reed brings with her extensive public education experience. She began her career as a teacher in Appalachia and for more than ten years, taught in both rural and urban communities. In 1986, she and her husband moved to California, where Reed served for sixteen years as a special education teacher, and a school principal.

In 2009, Reed retired from the California public education system to move to Pagosa Springs with her husband. She was named the Archuleta School District Assistant Superintendent that same year and in that capacity, she was responsible for all aspects of curriculum, assessment and state and federal programs.
