Mr. James "Thomas" Cox

Hello and welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!

I am James "Thomas" Cox, and I am the new Debate and English Teacher for Madison High School for the 2022-2023 school year. This year, I will be teaching one section of Debate 1-3, Oral Interpretation 1-3, and five sections of English 2.

I started teaching in January 2015, and this is my 8th full year as a teacher. I have taught grades 7-12 for Beeville ISD, Alice ISD, and Victoria ISD before now finding myself in San Antonio at North East ISD. I am excited about all of the opportunities this year will bring, and I'm excited about being a Maverick!

I am a graduate of A.C. Jones High School in Beeville, TX, and a former Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islander. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication with a Media Emphasis as well as two Associates Degrees in Music Education and Accounting. I am also certified to teach LeadWorthy (formerly Teen Leadership) through Flippen Group, LLC; I am also certified as a Data Analyst through IBM.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, spending time with my family, and learning more about debate, mythology, and foreign languages. I am also a lifelong fan of professional wrestling, and am currently binging Supernatural and watching Big Brother for the summer/fall.
