Mrs. Elysce Thornton
Hello! My name is Elysce Thornton, and I am extremely excited to teach 4th grade math and science at Bayou View Elementary this year. This will be my second year at B.V.E. and my third year teaching. I graduated from The University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education in December of 2017. Before becoming a teacher, I worked in the banking industry for fifteen years. Even though I enjoyed my career, I decided to follow my passion and pursued my degree in education. It has proven to be a great decision! I'm especially happy that I am teaching in the Gulfport School District at Bayou View Elementary because my love of learning started within the classrooms of this very school.
This year is going to be unlike any year in the past since we are making history today! I am honored to be a part of your child's learning journey. We are going to have a great year, and we are going to conquer this school year together!
