Tom spent several years teaching Automotive Technology to teenagers in Elmhurst, Illinois, at York Community High School, where he was also the track and field teams shot put coach. He was released in 1998 over a disagreement about opportunities for the students in his classes. He had arranged for students to work in a local body shop alongside experienced body men, and he sent the students two at a time every Friday. The school, however, disapproved of the arrangement.
