Chickasaws, 7/8 Written Expression 

Hello.  My name is June Maddox and I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Language Arts and a Master’s degree in secondary education from East Central University in Ada, OK.  I have taught 35 years in the public school system and am a National Board Certified Teacher since 2007.  I believe that students “must know how much a teacher cares before they care how much a teacher knows.”  This is a quote I first heard in college that became my philosophy and has stayed with me that I truly believe.  I know all children are different, and learn in different ways, but they are all the same in the fact that they all want to be accepted and to feel like they belong.  I strive as an educator to be understanding and compassionate, yet work to fulfill the needs of my students to help them become successful and productive in their futures.  I have lived in Tulsa for 26 years and I have a miniature schnauzer fur-baby named Preslie.

 

I am excited to be a part of the tradition at Town and Country School and look forward to this new and exciting adventure.
