Spring / Summer 2019

As an iconic 45-year veteran of the classroom, Mr. Thomas Beatty '68, retires from his role as CM principal and math teacher, we dedicate this issue to exploring excellence in teaching.

From Mr. Beatty spending his entire career to teaching and coaching boys, to Mr. Matthew Carroll ’04 encouraging his students to build character through an Urban Plunge, to Mr. Fremont Bassett '65 helping to arm Floridian students with the tools they need to succeed, CM alumni have taken skills they developed at Baker Street and shared them with the world.

Enjoy learning about these three outstanding CM alumni, as well as the accomplishments and successes of our students and faculty.

We hope you enjoy this edition of CM Magazine.

Below, a look back on Mr. Thomas Beatty's remarkable 45-year career, and a video supplement to our "5 Questions" Q&A, in which we asked students about "good teaching."
