Mrs. Maddox, Fourth Grade Teacher

Hello and Welcome to room 249!

This is my second year teaching  but I've been around Minneapolis Public Schools for over twenty years as a parent, an activist and a Reserve Teacher. I am excited about being at Jenny Lind because it is in my neighborhood. I often run into students while walking, shopping at Cub or Target and doing other errands in the area.  Another reason I am committed to Jenny Lind, my children attended in the late '90's. 

Teaching is my third career. First I was an Electrical Engineer at Honeywell after receiving a BSEE from Prairie View A&M University. Then I was a stay at home mom while occasionally helping with daycare for a few families.  During this time I had many opportunities to volunteer in my children's classrooms which got me hooked on being in schools.  When all of my children were in school fulltime I became a Reserve Teacher. In 2015 I returned to school, received my Elementary Education License and continued at the Universtiy of Minnesota to earn my Master of Education.
