Mrs. Jennifer Boyd

I have been in the education field for many years. I graduated from Defiance College with a degree in Fine Arts and continued on to teach both Music and Art for 14 years. After that, I decided to take on a new challenge of building the arts in the community by opening Just Be Original Fine Arts Academy in downtown Defiance. I am an instructor for many classes for both children and adults. I currently teach art for the Bryan Center for Autism and am involved with teaching art classes and camps for both Good Samaritan Schools and Kaitlyn’s Cottage. I enjoy teaching at St. John Lutheran very much!
