Oxford Middle School
“Thanks so much to my colleagues for this honor. I am thrilled about the possibilities we have at OMS to transform a great place into an extraordinary one. We’ve made a huge leap in attempting to transform our library into a learning commons and educational hub for our students. Let’s see what we can accomplish together!”
The Oxford School District is proud to recognize Oxford Middle School librarian Karen Elliott as our Employee of the Week. Ms. Elliott helps make our district a great place to work and learn.
Here’s what Oxford Middle School has to say about Ms. Elliott:
“Karen has recently changed job titles to become the new Librarian/Media Specialist at OMS. The library at OMS has expanded its role to not only provide library services, but to become a learning hub for OMS. Karen has taken on this new ‘expansion of roles’ with enthusiasm, creativity, and diligence. Karen is an experienced teacher and is also able to provide both instructional and emotional support for her fellow teachers and colleagues.”
“Karen has revamped the library in ways I could not have imagined. She has gone above and beyond to make it a place where all kids want to be. The future is mighty bright for the OMS library and learning commons.”
“She does such a fabulous job in the library with all of the new activities she is incorporating. She not only does great things in the library, but she gets out around the school to help teachers and students. She is constantly promoting learning with vocabulary words around the school, and she even arrives at school early to get students involved in vocabulary before they go to their first period class. She not only deserves the employee of the week, but she deserves employee of the MONTH and YEAR!”
“Karen always gives 110% at school. She arrives early and stays late. She has a true love for reading and is passionate about teaching the students.”
“She has done an outstanding job getting students and faculty excited about all the new things in the library.”
Congratulations, Ms. Elliott! You’re a great representative of the #ChargerNation.
