Miss Diane Oaks
I became the librarian/media specialist at R. E. Thompson in the 2007-08 school year. I began my career at RET as a 3rd grade teacher in the 1998-99 school year.
I have been an avid reader my entire life. As a child, I loved reading the Nancy Drew Mystery Series by Carolyn Keene and the "Little House" books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Some of my other favorites include the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, The "I Survived" Series by Lauren Tarshis, and The Magic Treehouse books by Mary Pope Osborne. Along with reading, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and watching Alabama football (Roll Tide!) and the Atlanta Braves.
