Hello! I am Mr. Otley and I am pleased to teach English IV and Journalism courses at Madison.


    cool guy


       Hello everyone. I'm Mr. Otley!

         This is my 5th year as a Maverick and my 23rd year as a teacher.

       Before becoming a school teacher in 2002, I worked as a journalist at the San Antonio Express-News,

       KENS-TV,  The News of Texas, and CBS Newspath. I also worked for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, but that was 

       as a paperboy.



        I loved working as a professional journalist, but I enjoy teaching even more! 

        A native San Antonian,  I graduated from John Jay in 1974. (that is not a typo). I am a graduate of IWC, class of '79.

        I have been married to Novetta (a Roosevelt grad) for 41 years and we have four children who attended

        Redland Oaks Elementary, Driscoll, and MacArthur.


    James Madison High School is committed to preparing students for adult life by providing an educational program that promotes academic achievement and intellectual development.
