Teacher Tom is a preschool teacher, blogger, speaker, artist and the author. For the past 15 years, he has taught preschool at the Woodland Park Cooperative School in Seattle. The children come to him as 2-year-olds in diapers and leave as "sophisticated" 5-year-olds ready for kindergarten. The cooperative school model allows him to work very closely with families in a true community setting. He loves the kids and loves the families and finds it an incredibly rewarding job.
