High Point Academy Spartanburg’s February Middle School Teacher Spotlight is Mrs. Heidi Boyd. She is a graduate of Vincennes University in Indiana. She holds a degree with Special Education/Mild Interventions. Growing up she struggled in school and learning was difficult. When her family moved from New Hampshire to Fort Mill, South Carolina when she was in 5th-grade things changed. Mrs. Boyd found that the teachers were helpful. Instead of telling her what she couldn’t do, they encouraged her to work hard in school and showed her strengths. After this, her grades improved and she started to believe in herself. As a teacher, Mrs. Boyd wants to encourage her students in the same way. This is Mrs. Boyd’s fifth year at High Point Academy. “I could not ask for a better school. I love working where I can interact with students across all grades. Seeing them progress through their education is amazing; something I would not be able to see if I were in a traditional public school,” Mrs. Boyd said.
She has been married for 19 years and has two amazing kids Michael and Kayla; and a sweet daughter-in-law Chelsea. Michael and Chelsea are both in the military pursuing what they love. Kayla is a senior this year at HPA and preparing for her transition into college. When she is not working, she loves to spend time with family. We are thankful for Mrs. Boyd’s commitment and love for HPA!
