Me. Thomas was an amazing teacher, I have so many fond memories that I share with my children. He definitely knew how to make the banal extraordinary! I am so sorry to hear of his passing, my thoughts are with his friends and family at this time.

While I've always had fond memories, I didn't realize quite the impact he had on me until I heard this news. I will never forget him.
