Cari Boyd is the new Principal of Georgetown Middle School. Boyd has served as Dean of Students at GMS for three years.
“In my role as principal, I will provide support and structures which allow teachers to continue the important work of putting our students first,” Boyd reflected on her new role. “I want to make sure they [teachers] have the tools and time needed every single day to foster relationships with students while helping them reach their academic potential.”
Boyd graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a degree in Elementary Education. She earned her Master’s in Elementary Education with a K-12 endorsement in English as a Second Language (ESL) from the University of Kentucky where she is currently a doctoral candidate pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Educational Leadership. Before coming to GMS, Boyd worked in Fayette County for 13 years where she taught third and fifth grades and spent eight years as an ESL teacher for grades K-5.
At GMS, Boyd will continue to work in conjunction with students, families, and community members to increase student achievement. Special Education Teacher Julie Bayer believes Boyd is a valuable asset to the school community.
“Cari’s genuine heart for students and staff at GMS makes her a great leader. There is no task she will not take on and complete to the best of her ability,” Bayer commented. “Her ability to build and maintain relationships, along with her knowledge of content and assessment, are a winning combination.”
