Tom Styles Managing Member/Director
Hello and welcome to Troy! To most on site I am Mr. Styles, or Styles, and the perfect person to direct the Troy campus sites at Sacred Heart and Our Lady of Victory. I've been doing so for nearly 10 years. I was born and raised in Troy, having attended Sacred Heart School as a young child and returning 25 years later after leaving the teaching profession in 2009. I still live in Troy, so things have come full circle. I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a master's in developmental reading and mathematics, with a dozen years directing and working child care programs.
In the pre-TSL era, I was a proud, progressive elementary school teacher for 12 years in the public and private school sectors. Uninspired by the current state of our educational system and pedagogy, I decided to break away and start my own programs where we could accomplish what we couldn't in the classroom. I have never looked back -- not even for a peek. I come from a long history of teaching school and leading/directing a variety of recreational child care programs with other agencies, though I have to give a shout-out to the Nature’s Classroom educational program and Project Adventure as my greatest sources of inspiration.
My hobbies and pastimes include family, TSL, TSL and TSL. If there is time to TALK, there is time to DO. I prefer the latter.
