Janie Boyd



4th Grade, Brighton location

My name is Janie Boyd, and I am the 4th grade teacher at Brighton Academy in The Woodlands.  I grew up in Texas and am originally from Silsbee. I have two wonderful children a son (15) and a daughter (9) who attends the SHSU Brighton campus. 

I have a degree in Behavioral Sciences- Psychology from University of Houston- Clear Lake, TX with a concentration in Women’s Studies.  Prior to that I studied music as a Vocal Performance major at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.  I come from a long line of educators and have a background as a community educator and a preschool teacher for 8 years.  I decided 5 years ago to become an elementary teacher and have worked at The Woodlands Classical Academy as a 2nd grade teacher for the past 3 years.

I am so excited to be a part of the new SHSU charter school family!  We have a very hands-on approach that both the students and teachers love!  It’s wonderful to be a part of such an amazing team!
