Welcome

I am excited about teaching such talented students in Drawing 1 and Visual Art  online classes!  Since 2000, I have taught in the Desoto County school system and am proud to be a part of North Mississippi education.  My husband and I have two beautiful daughters, who are married and we have three grandsons.  I am blessed!  Let's enjoy this new experience together!  Please contact me if you have any questions by email:  vicki.maddox@dcsms.org or through text on School Status.
