Dr. Denise Osborn
I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as the site director for Kids and Company Pre-K. The 2019-2020 school year will mark my 6th year in this position. I have been an educator for almost 24 years and have been with the Cartersville City School system for the last 18. After receiving my bachelor’s degree from the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!), I began my teaching career in south Fulton County. After teaching first grade for two years, I began teaching kindergarten in Forsyth County. After four years, I moved to Cartersville. While teaching kindergarten and first grade at Cartersville Primary, I completed my master’s degree in reading at Berry College. In 2006, I moved from being a classroom teacher into the role of Literacy Coach at the primary school. In 2012, I completed my doctoral work in Instructional Leadership from Nova Southeastern University.
On the personal side, my father was in the Army so I have had the opportunity to live in many different places throughout my life. These places include North Carolina, Texas, Colorado, Germany, and Kentucky. I consider Augusta, Georgia my home as my parents still reside there. I am married to Jeff Osborn and we are the proud parents of three sons – Hunter Osborn (24), Harrison Osborn (21) and Russell Mathison (19). We also have two furry children – an Australian Shepherd mix named Smokey and a Labrador Retriever named Rocky Balboa.
