Welcome back! My name is Kenneth Maedgen. This will be my second year as an 8th grade ELA teacher on the La Vega Junior High campus. I am extremely excited to be a part of the La Vega family, in particular the George Dixon Campus. I graduated from Tarleton State University with a Bachelor's Degree of Science with a Business Emphasis. Upon graduating I quickly realized I could make a difference in the teaching profession. I soon enrolled in an alternative education program where I earned my teaching certification. I believe that education is a unique experience for every student who enters a classroom. In order for students to benefit from what schools have to offer, I think teachers must understand the importance of their job. Teachers must facilitate learning while continuing to grow academically, personally, and ethically by providing a quality education to every student in the classroom. I'm excited to meet my students and their families. This will be a great year and I am excited for it to begin!
