Ms. Maddox, Fifth Grade Teacher
Mary Summer 2018

Hello and Welcome to Room 249!

This is my third year teaching  at Jenny LInd, 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 North Market, 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.
