In 2018, Tom was inducted into the Indiana Association of Teacher Educators Hall of Fame.  He

An advocate for people with special needs, their families, and service providers, he has made over 300

He firmly believes that "our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter" (Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr.) and that "one child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world"
(Malala Yousafzai).

Tom and his wife Elizabeth have a daughter and three sons - ranging in age from 14 to 34 - and six
