Lee County High School is proud to have Mrs. Jamie Oder as our Teacher of the Year. After many years in the healthcare arena, Mrs. Oder joined our faculty six years ago to lead a new generation of nurses into the field.
Mrs. Oder received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Georgia Southwestern, and holds a masters degree from Valdosta State University and a specialist degree from Georgia Southwestern. Many of Mrs. Oder's Healthcare Science students have followed her pathway and have gone on to receive nursing degrees from these local universities.
As an LCHS alumnus herself, Mrs. Oder says the healthcare science program is important to her because she is a product of it. “I took three years of healthcare and it was my favorite class, with my favorite teacher, Judy Glass. I am thankful that I teach in the same room where I took my healthcare class, because it provides me with perspective. I believe it is important to think about our students’ needs, diverse backgrounds, and allow our instruction to make students excited about their future possibilities. I feel honored to teach the next generation of healthcare professionals that will serve our community.”
Mrs. Oder and her husband, Will, are the proud parents of Shelby and Jase. She loves learning about God, being a dance and Jiu-Jit-Su mom, listening to podcasts, shopping, and riding her bike.
Congratulations, Mrs. Oder, and thank you for representing excellence in teaching.
