Hello! I am Mr. Otley and I am pleased to teach English IV and Journalism courses at Madison.
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.
My wife Novetta and I visited Hawaii a couple of years ago. Surfs up!
Here I am back in the last century working for CBS.
