Mrs. Wendy Boyd
Hi, I’m Mrs. Boyd and I teach grades 1-4 at Mobile Jr. Academy. I grew up in beautiful Niagara Falls in Upstate New York. Adventist heritage and education go a long way back in my family tree making me a 4th generation Adventist. My life is a testimony to the impact that Adventist education can have on a child’s life as well as the generations that follow them. Ask me sometime about my personal journey and what Adventist education has done for me in my life. I would love to share.
My love of for Alabama and southern living began when I spent my summer breaks on my grandmother’s farm in Dothan, Alabama. Subsequently, when it came time for me to graduate from Union Springs Academy it wasn’t a hard decision to move to Tennessee to attend Southern Adventist University. It was there that I earned Adventist certification and a BS in Elementary Education. I later went on to earn Certification as a Reading Specialist from Elmira College. Along the way I also earned some awards including the Senior Student of the Year Alumni Award and Scholarship. I graduated with a Magna cum Laude and was awarded the 1999 Who’s Who among American College Students.
I believe it is important to keep up to date on educational trends so I read and take courses every year to keep up to date with new methods of teaching and learning. Another important goal for me is for my students to come to school every day with anticipation excitement about learning. I also want them to discover their individuality as well as their God given gifts and talents. In our classroom students will learn the importance of teamwork by working together and helping each other to achieve. I love this little school and all the wonderful people who are part of making our program a huge success.
