Mrs. Elysce Thornton

       Hello!  My name is Elysce Thornton, and I am extremely excited about teaching 4th grade math and science at Bayou View Elementary again this year. This will be my fourth year teacher 4th grade at this amazing school.  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.  Believe it or not, I learned so many facts about science in this very classroom.  It's incredible that I get to share this with my students.
