Ms. Amanda Osborne
Thanks for visiting the Oxford High School Library Information page. I am Amanda Osborne, your friendly OHS Librarian. My interests include reading (shocker!); swimming (new workout crush), watching sprots, especially football, and baseball; cooking & eating; and most importantly spending time with family & friends. I have 2 school age daughters, Annelise (12) and Ivy Scott (8), and a pawsome one-eyed dog, Cap-n-Jack!
I have 17 years of service as a MS public school educator! I taught English in grades 7-12 for thirteen years in Central and North MS before becoming certified as a Library/Media Specialist. Prior to coming to OHS, I served as Librarian for the students in grades 5-8 in Pontotoc City Schools.
Currently, I am working on my Ed.S. degree in Secondary Education with an English emphasis at The University of Mississippi. I expect to graduate in May 2019. After I graduate, I will either continue work on my (abandoned) Ph.D. in Secondary Ed. or pursue my Masters in Library Science degree . I'm currently researching the pros and cons of both degree routes! I welcome your input into which side of the fence boasts the greenest grass!
In my sixth year as librarian, I can honestly say I LOVE MY SCHOOL LIBRARY! I love my patrons and the wonderful OHS & L.O.U. community. This year, the library acquired a 3D printer thanks to a generous grant from the Oxford School District Foundation. I look forward to see the great things the OHS community can do with it!
Feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org. Stop by the library if you are on campus or schedule a class visit. We are open 7:15-4:15 M-F!
