Ask anybody: J. Tyson Tildon has a very low tolerance for mediocrity. Regardless of his accomplishments, the 71-year-old scientist who recently left the Baltimore school board always believes he can do more. As if studying biochemistry as a Fulbright scholar in Paris weren't enough, a year later Tildon enrolled at the Johns Hopkins University to earn his doctorate in the field. And although he is father to three children, he adopted a 20-year-old college student because she was fatherless and had a promising future in medicine.

J. Tyson Tildon, a retired scientist who has led the Baltimore school board through the first four years of comprehensive reform, stepped down as school board chairman last night, and was replaced by fellow board member Patricia L. Welch. Welch, 59, dean of the school of education at Morgan State University, has been on the board since it was created in June 1997 through joint appointments by the mayor of Baltimore and the governor. That marked the beginning of a five-year, heavily state-subsidized overhaul of public education in the city.

A FEW weeks ago, when Baltimore school board Chairman J. Tyson Tildon came up with the idea of recruiting retired educators to fill classrooms in the city this fall, Robert C. Embry Jr. challenged him:If you can get 100 retirees back in the saddle, Embry said, "I'll carry you on my shoulders up the center of Charles Street."Embry, president of the Abell Foundation and a former president of the Board of School Commissioners, had better get in shape. More than 200 former teachers and administrators showed up for an orientation Aug. 23, and applications are still coming in, according to Helen Patterson, a retired administrator recruited by Tildon to coordinate the effort.
