• My name is Lara Mercer, and I am so honored to be at Boyd Elementary! I grew up in Allen and attended Reed Elementary, Curtis Middle School, and Allen High School. I am a Texas A&M University graduate (WHOOP!). I have a bachelor's degree in English, minor in Communication, and a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. This is my thirteenth year in education, and my third year as an assistant principal. My husband and I have been married for eight years, and we have two amazing children. Jack is first grader here in Allen, and Cate is in pre-k.

    I strongly believe in teaching the whole child and making sure students learn strategies that will make them successful for life. I am here to have a partnership with students and parents, so please feel free to reach out at any time!
