Mrs. Thom

I graduated from UBC with a 5 year Bachelor of Education degree and have been
working in the educational field for 30 years. Previously, I was a high/middle
school teacher and Gr. 5/6 educator at Nicomekl and Noel Booth Elementary. I
live in Walnut Grove, so it had been a goal of mine to 
one day teach at a school closer to home, and fortunately I was able to make
the move to Gordon Greenwood.  Working with children continues to be my
passion and I love coaching volleyball, basketball, and track and field. My
husband and I have two daughters who graduated from the Langley Fine Arts
School.  Shelby is a broadcast journalist in Vancouver, and Breanna attends
UBCO in Kelowna. I look forward to another positive educational experience
with my students, colleagues, and the parent community at Gordon Greenwood!

Mrs. Boyce

I am looking forward to returning to Gordon Greenwood after a year of
maternity leave.  Now that I am a mother to two young daughters, Brielle and
Arwen, I am excited to be back in the classroom.  I will be teaching on
Wednesdays covering French, Art, Science and Computers/Technology.  Before
receiving my teaching degree from UBC in 2008, I worked as an Animal Biologist
and have since participated with a district team to develop experiments that
support the BC curriculum.  I hope to share my enthusiasm for Science and
research-based learning with the class. I feel fortunate to be a part of a
school with such a positive and collaborative school community and look
forward to a great year.
