I went to Leary School from April 1968-July 1973 and my favorite teachers were Al Berg, Janet Foreman, and Joan Loftus. I would like to know where they are today, if they are still alive. My name is Charles Wood and my cell phone number is 630-308-0667. The best time to reach me during the day is 9:00a.m-1:00p.m

I went to Leary School from 1973 through 1975, ages 12-14. It was a wonderful experience for a very insecure kid at that time. My favorite teacher was Al Berg, I wish I knew where he was now. My favorite part of the school was the positive interaction with the teachers and how they really cared! Although we learned a great deal in the classroom setting I feel i grew the most when we were playing football with the staff during breaks!

my ten years from 1982 to 1992 working at Leary School enhanced my life while it enhanced the students entrusted to our care. Now in the twilight of my life at 65 years of age I am more than sure that all children will benefit from the Leary School learning experiences. Mr. Fields, former Crisis Counselor
