I just picked up the very sad news of Tom Conlon’s death today.
Tom was one of my lecturers when I was training to be a teacher at Moray House (along with Tony van der Kuyl who died last year at this time). He was a brilliant lecturer and the high standards he set for me as a trainee were great preparation for life as a new teacher.
Tom was one of the most articulate people I have ever met and it was great to see him in full flight – although not very comfortable when you were on the receiving end of his invective.
I will miss the challenge he provided and just wish I could have persuaded him that Glow was more good than bad.
