Madeline Scott is a 7th-grade social studies teacher at Midwest City Middle School in Midwest City, Oklahoma. Madeline is a Fourth-year teacher and a sixth-year educator. Madeline is passionate about equitable education, she believes every child deserves a quality education regardless of their socioeconomic background. This drove her to be a part of the Urban Teaching Preparation Academy where she received extensive training on how to best assist at-risk students. As a teacher, Madeline has seen first-hand the hardships which budget cuts put on many of these students. This led Madeline to advocate for public education for years and feels that now is an excellent time to get more teachers into the state legislature. She first ran for office after the Oklahoma Teacher Walkout in 2018 when she was dissatisfied with her representation. Since then she has continued to advocate for her students and fellow Oklahomans.
Born and raised in Plano, Texas, she grew up as the middle child of five. As the daughter of a self-made man and mother with humble origins, the importance of quality education and helping others was instilled in her at a young age. Growing up Madeline watched as her father, a disabled veteran struggled to find adequate healthcare not only for himself but for Madeleine's younger sister. Watching her parents advocate for her sister inspired Madeline to help others in need. This is why she decided to attend Oklahoma State University to pursue a degree in Elementary Education where she held leadership positions in various club organizations. It was at OSU where Madeline met her husband Ethan. Upon graduation, they settled down in Choctaw, Oklahoma. They have two lovely dogs, Pepper and Millie.
