M. J. Maddox, the American English Doctor

Maeve Maddox is my pen name. It will be familiar to readers of the language blog Daily Writing Tips.

The name you’ll find on my academic credentials is Margaret Joan Maddox. I’ve earned four university degrees and taught language and literature at every level from preschool to university, in public and private schools, in the United States and in England.

My views about teaching and public education often differ from current policy and practice.  However, I am a strong supporter of public education. I regard the public schools as the best hope of unifying the diverse segments of the population that make up this country. That said, I have to acknowledge that political and economic corruption have found their way into the public education system. Parents and teachers must work together to resist policies and teaching fads that are detrimental to teaching, learning, and the national interest.
