Nominated by Judith Kelley
Joyce has been with the Tyngsborough School System for the past thirty years, serving as a classroom teacher, Elementary Science Curriculum Coordinator, and Professional Development Coordinator for Grades PreK-12. She has served diligently in many aspects of the PALMS Program, has been president of STARS, and has been a member of the Massachusetts Science and Technology writing team as well as the Assessment Committee. Joyce has demonstrated her love for hands on classroom learning with her "Night Under the Stars", flight simulations at the McAuliffe Center, and a visit to a former mine to explore rocks. Her colleague calls to mind a quote from Margaret Meade to describe Joyce,
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed individuals can change the world...
it's the only thing that has."
