Dr. Jamita Lewis



Students, Osborn Faculty, Parents, and Community:


I am Dr. Jamita Lewis. I have served at Osborn High School since the start of the 2022-2023 school year. I am very excited to serve in this role because I have lived and attended church in this community since I was born.

I followed the K-12 educational pipeline by serving as a Social Studies teacher, a Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment, and a Turnaround Assistant Principal. I have a work history in higher education, middle schools, high schools, charter schools, and Grand Rapids Public School District. For the past three years, I had the pleasure to work within DPSCD, at Henry Ford High School. Combined, I have served 18 years in education and I am ready and eager to serve students and faculty at Osborn High School.

I received my college degrees from: Michigan State University (Bachelors of Arts); and Oakland University (Master of Public Administration; Education Specialist Degree, and Philosophy of Education Degree).  I am a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and a mother of 2. 

As we enter into the school year, remember: School at its core is still the same. This school was named after Laura Osborn. Osborn once said, “...Let us never forget that the generations we are teaching in the schools today will be running the same country in twenty years- and how they run it depends upon how they are taught”.

I am excited to embark upon this education journey with you. 


Kindest Regards,


Dr. Jamita Lewis, Ph.D
