Hello, my name is Tom and I am a recently retired elementary assistant principal, third grade teacher and special educator. I have six children, four grandchildren and over 30 years experience working with elementary aged children in the Round Rock and Leander school districts.
I am especially interested in using technology in learning. I enjoy teaching Reading, Science, Math and Social Studies. I am currently tutoring my second grade grandchild in Clemson, SC. with her spelling using an iPad application. We use FaceTime every Thursday night to take a written pre-test before the big test on Friday morning. I am pleased to report she has made high marks on her report card in spelling and has made significant gains in reading this year.
Creating a wide variety of experiences helps children learn and develop their interests and provides them with a wealth of general knowledge. As parents and educators, we must challenge ourselves to make learning an enjoyable lifetime habit.
I enjoy gardening and I am an amateur photographer. I recently photographed a car race and endangered whooping cranes.
