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 18 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.
I completed my Ed.S. degree in Secondary Education with an English emphasis this past May. I also hold a Master's Degree from Belhaven University in Jackson, MS; a B.A. in Literature from UNC Asheville, NC; and an A.A. degree from Hinds Community College in Raymond, MS. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher in Early Adolescent English Language Arts.
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.
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!
