Get to know Sandy Boyd:
What do you like most about your job at CDS?
“I like lots of things about my job. I love the sense of community among the students, faculty and families. I like the top-notch faculty and staff who challenge me to be a better professional. I like all the sports and outdoor activities (especially soccer and Ski Club).”
What books and authors inspire you? I like Glasser and Wubboldings work with Choice Theory and Reality Therapy. I think their theories are very applicable to real life. Sidhartha and Catcher in the Rye are enduring favorites. I enjoy reading the New Yorker, Alpinist and newspapers like the Wall Street Journal.”
What is your favorite quote about education, mentorship, children, and/or learning? Education is not filling a bucket but lighting a fire.” - Yeats
What personal passion brings balance to your life? I live in West Asheville with my wife, son and daughter, and 14 year old dog, Anna. I’ve been a rock and ice climber for 15 years. I enjoy whitewater kayaking and surfing when time allows. I play competitive adult league soccer and have started playing guitar in a rock and roll band.”
