Lilian Elizabeth Thom, Secondary School Educator, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in secondary education.
The most important lesson that Mrs. Thom has learned over the course of her career is this: everyone has the capacity to learn more. As a teacher for more than 40 years, she demonstrates compassion and love of teaching that has extended beyond the classroom on many occasions throughout her tenure. In short, she has committed herself to always going the extra mile to ensure that her students were given the tools to succeed. Since 1982, she has been an instructor for the resource room at Junior High School #44 in New York, NY. She came into this role after having already amassed 23 years in the field. Previously, she found success as a teacher of supervisor education for St. Mark’s School, daycare education assistant for Community Sponsors, senior mistress and teacher for the St. Barnabas Government education program, and elementary education and home economics teacher at St. Phillip’s Governmental School. Along the way, she has also been an evening school teaching for the Taylor Business School in Manhattan, NY and a tutor for students at the St. Barnabas Government education program.
Mrs. Thom is constantly inspired by the joy of learning she developed in childhood growing up in Guyana. She came to the United States in 1976 with a vision of enhancing future generations of thinkers and doers. To support her career, Mrs. Thom earned a Master of Science in reading and learning disabilities from Adelphi University and achieved GCE O Levels in English and Religious Studies from the University of London. Considered an expert in her field, she has shared her insight and knowledge through her involvement with many industry organizations including the United Federation of Teachers, for which she served as a teacher delegate for two years. She also is a member of the Guyana Teachers Association and the National Association of Female Executives. As she looks to the future, Mrs. Thom intends to continue teaching while seeking new opportunities to impact her field.
