    She 'd get

    She 'd get there.

    Does " 'd" stands for "would"?

    I am not a teacher.

    Although, there should be no space before the apostrophe.

    Re: She 'd get

    Usually, the next word (in this case "get") will tell you what the 'd means.

    There are some occasions where it's hard to tell from a single sentence. For example:

    She'd read it.

    This could be "She would read it" or "She had read it". This problem only occurs because the infinitive and past tense of "to read" are spelt the same way. The rest of the context would be needed in order to work out which one is correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
