Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Pam Maddox
Because I was here last year, many of you know that I am not a "new" teacher. I began teaching when I was a graduate student in Nashville, TN at Vanderbilt. In mid year I taught a class of students mandated by the state to receive special instruction. I was a disaster. Then I moved to Oxford and taught for three years in the Oxford City Schools. After moving to Meridian, I began teaching intellectually gifted and have taught only gifted since then--about 27 years. Most of my teaching career has be with the Tupelo City Schools after I did a long stint as a stay-at-home mom.
Being with kids is the only thing that I want to do. I have the best job in the world. Your children are the best part of my world now, and I love the world they share with me.
You know that the young humans--your children--whom you entrust to OTMS is the most scared part of you. I will do everything I can to make this the best year that I can for them and for you. At ANYTIME if you have worries, comments, questions, observations, etc. for me, please call me.
