Our journey is off to an incredible start!
I am Jackie Boyd, the Assistant Principal at Colony Meadows Elementary. Although I was born just outside of Toronto, Canada, I consider Sugar Land to be my hometown. After graduating from Kempner High School, I attended the University of Texas, Austin, earning my Bachelor of Science in Deaf Education, and my Masters of Education with in Curriculum and Instruction in Elementary Education. I also did graduate work at Lamar University in the area of Educational Leadership.
I began my career as an educator as a paraprofessional at Texas School for the Deaf before moving back to Houston to work as a teacher for Alief ISD. I have taught in a variety of grade levels and subjects, but fifth grade math will always have a special place in my heart. I spent a year as the Upper School Director at Mission Bend Christian Academy before coming to Colony Meadows. This is my fifth year at CME, and I cannot imagine being any place else in the world. The values at Colony Meadows align with my own personal values so perfectly, such as educating the whole child, inclusion of the entire community, spreading love and positivity, and building a strong acadmic foundation for our life-long learners.
I am currently married to my husband, Jason. I have been lucky to have had three amazing children, Hunter, Kat, and Jon. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and working on my large collection of unfinished sewing and crafting projects.
