Degrees and Certifications:

Amanda Lockwood

I’m excited to begin my 25th year as a teacher and 8th as an Oakhurst Owl! I’ve taught everything from pre-K through 8th grade, special education and gifted, public and private school. I’m an Atlanta native and I’ve lived in the City of Decatur for 23 years. Part of my heart lives in New Orleans, where I earned a Bachelor’s degree from Tulane University, but I can’t seem to quit my home state, and returned to earn my Master’s degree from Georgia State University.

I live just a hop, skip and a jump from Oakhurst with my husband, David, our daughter and Oakhurst alumni, Lolly (10th grade at DHS), and two incredibly spoiled mutts, Princess Bubblegum and Marceline the Vampire Queen. We also have a son, JP, (also a former Oakhurst owl and 2021 DHS grad) who is a freshman at Tulane (!). I love to read, write, hike, and sit on my porch, listen to tunes, and watch the world go by.
