Teacher Tom is a preschool teacher, blogger, speaker, artist and 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.
