About Mrs. Boyd (formerly Ms. Solender)
Mrs. Boyd has taught at Holly Springs High School for four years and is loving year number five! She is currently one of the department chairs of the science department and absolutely loves physics and science! She is also a member of the Kenan Fellows Program cohort of 2015-2016, SAS Curriculum Pathways Teacher Team 2016, and Holly Springs High School Teacher of the Year!
Mrs. Boyd is originally from Maine so she loves the colder months and always gets a good laugh when we have snow days! Mrs. Boyd graduated from Elon University so naturally her favorite sports team is the Elon Phoenix.
When she's not teaching, Mrs. Boyd is attending sports events (Go Golden Hawks!), playing volleyball, hanging out with friends, or enjoying some quality time with Netflix. One of the most exciting moments of her life was when she got to meet her favorite astrophysicist and science educator: Neil deGrasse Tyson; second only to getting married this past November!
