Mr. Thomas C. Bailey, Jr.
Hello! My name is Tom Bailey. I started my Pottsgrove Educational Experience in 1972 at West Pottsgrove Elementary School as a kindergartner. I graduated from Pottsgrove in 1985. I then went onto MCCC and then West Chester University and received my degree in Mathematics Education as an honors Graduate. I student taught in 1991 with Mr. Allen Reed at the former Pottsgrove Intermediate School and later with Mrs. Eschbach at Pottsgrove High School. My first job was a part-time job at the High School. The following year, 1992 I started on Team 7-1 in Math. I taught 10 years in 7th grade and have been in 8th grade for the last 14 years. I can express the same sentiments as Lou Gehrig, "I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth!" I am very excited to teach Connected Math as well as Algebra from Carnegie Learning this school year (2016-2017) for the first time.
I am married to my HS sweetheart, Karen, another Pottsgrove graduate. She has been in the nursing field since 1989 and has been an RN First Assistant in the operating room since 1993. My daughter, Morgan, is now a graduate from Eastern University majoring in Media and Communications. She has recently moved to Kentucky to be with her fiance', Aaron and his son, Blake. My son, Zachary is a Junior at Temple University majoring in Sports Journalism. I have two chocolate labs, Abby and Maggie. I consider it an honor and a privilege to be a teacher in the Pottsgrove School District. I also coach 8th grade Football, 7th grade Girl's Basketball and 8th grade Girl's Softball. I also have the pleasure of being the Voice of The Falcons at every Friday night Football home game!!! I bleed Maroon and White!!! GO GROVE!!!
