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.
