For Teachers, Students, and Parents

 Chalk Talk is filled with anecdotes or memorable moments from Lawrence (Larry) McCarthy’s three decades of teaching at Dett Elementary School in Chicago. They come from notes taken at the time of occurrence or from reflecting on the impact they have had on the author that have lingered in his memory bank since his retirement in 1999. “So, I am going to deposit them here instead,” he says. 

A portion of all sales & proceeds will go to furthering the mission of the Idell-McCarthy Foundation.


Dett School Survey

This survey will cover the equity of education or educational environment for four and in some cases five generations. How does your parent’s education compare to yours? How do feel about the educational opportunities of your children, and if it applies, your grand and greatgrandchildren?
