This testimonial was shared by Mary Forrey about Madeleine Joseph, an art teacher from East Muskingum Local Schools. 

"Mad Joe", as she was affectionately known to her art students, was the best teacher ever. Wild red hair, wild spirit to match, she not only inspired ME to become an art teacher, she taught me more than almost anyone in my history about becoming truly and authentically MYSELF. She was a wonderful human and an inspiration to THOUSANDS of kids over the course of her career! I can see her yet...large hat, bright clothes...sneaking her Art III kids out the back door of the building to take a ride in her massive convertible to sneak a chocolate goodie in the middle of our school day...because celebrating LIFE was what she taught...along with a really good art course! Loved her then, love her now! Hats off to YOU, "Mad Joe"!
