A new member of the Malden High School’s teaching staff, Julie Fox, has much to look forward to in her new teaching career. Fox is the new math teacher in the Pathways program at MHS. This year will be her first year of teaching in a classroom, but already has a long teaching history ever since her teen years with "first job teaching tennis lessons." She was the Aquatics Director at the YMCA for her last job in Malden, where she taught swim lessons, coached the swim team, and taught Red Cross lessons.
Fox decided to work at MHS because Malden "is a great city and its schools have gotten better and better in the past eight years since [she has] been working in Malden." She feels honored to be able to work as a part of MHS with "such great faculty, staff, and students." It is surprising that although she has a strong involvement throughout Malden, Fox actually came from Lyons Township High School in LaGrange, Illinois. She graduated and went to Tufts for college.
Teaching is something Fox enjoys because she gets to help students learn something new and help them be able to overcome difficult material that they might come across. However, outside of teaching in a classroom at MHS, Fox also coaches the swim team at the YMCA, and the softball team in Melrose. She also enjoys playing softball and tennis herself, as well as doing photography and listening to music. Fox also enjoys playing trivia weekly at a restaurant in Melrose. Fox even enjoys going to Fenway to support the Red Sox, especially during seasons, "[when] the team is fun to watch."
