Mrs. Gayle Boyd

Hello.  I am Gayle Boyd, a special education assistant.  I have worked as an instructional assistant for twelve years.  I will be starting my sixth year here at Shortridge.  I have enjoyed my time here and I am excited to start a new year.  The students in my class mean a lot to me.  I have enjoyed watching them learn and grow.  I am a mother to three wonderful children: Emily (25), Sarah (24), and Sam (20).  I live in Indianapolis with my husband, Jim, and my dog, Toby.

I have been involved with the special needs community since the birth of my daughter, Sarah.  She was born with a mental disability and has taught me how to relate to this group of people.  In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering with the Special Olympics.  I also enjoy spending time with my family.

I look forward to another year at Shortridge IB High School.  I'm excited to see what inclusion will look like this year for my students.
