Jim Carlone ’88 named McCallie Alumni Chair of Mathematics

Posted by McCallie Communications and Marketing on April 24, 2018

Upper School Math teacher Jim Carlone ’88 has been awarded the Endowed Alumni Chair of Mathematics, becoming only the second holder of this honor that was established in the 1980s to recognize exceptional math instruction at McCallie.

“Jim Carlone is an outstanding math teacher and is well deserving of this honor,” Assistant Headmaster Kenny Sholl said. “He pushes his boys to achieve their best efforts in a way that inspires a love of the subject and gets the best out of his students. He was the clear choice for this honor.”

The Alumni Chair of Mathematics was established to honor three legendary McCallie math teachers — Chalmers McIlwaine ‘21, John Pataky ‘49 and Houston Patterson ‘43 — and “to perpetuate the high classroom standards set by these three master teachers.”

The purpose of the position as stated at the time of its endowment was “to attract an exceptional teacher whose knowledge and appreciation of mathematics is surpassed only by his desire and ability to teach in the high school classroom.”

“The Alumni Chair of Mathematics is a testament to McCallie’s tradition of academic excellence,” Headmaster Lee Burns ’87 said. “Jim carries on the legacy established by the great teachers who came before him.”

Probably the best time I ever had at Prince’s compound eating pancakes and listening to him jam at 4:00 a.m. was the one time back in 2013 where I went out to Paisley Park, ate pancakes, and listened to him jam. It was also the only time I went out to Prince’s, ate pancakes, and listened to him jam. Also, we were wearing pajamas. Here’s how it went down.
