Colvin named finalist for Texas Computer Education Association Library Media Specialist of the Year

Lockhart Junior High School Librarian Annie Colvin was honored Tuesday evening as a finalist for Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) Library Specialist of the Year.

Each year, TCEA recognizes exemplary educators in Texas who have shown excellence in implementing technology in their classrooms, libraries, schools, and districts. Colvin’s use of technology in the LJHS library made her a statewide standout, earning her this year’s honor.

Colvin has been an educator in Lockhart Independent School District for over a decade, first teaching at LJHS, then later becoming the librarian for the former M.L. Cisneros Freshman Campus, and most recently returning to LJHS as the library media specialist.

She serves on the campus Literacy Leadership Team, the LISD Visionary Instructional Planning (LISDVIP) first cohort and is both Common Sense Media Educator Certified and Ambassador Certified. Her leadership not only benefits the students and staff at LJHS, but also impacts innovation and service delivery districtwide.

“Annie Colvin is creating a ‘Future Ready’ library for our students, teachers, and staff,” said LJHS Principal Lori Davis. “Students thrive in our library, which is on the leading edge of the digitational transformation of learning. We are so excited to see her honored for her tremendous work.”

“Ms. Colvin sets a fine example of higher expectations and excellence to boost the student learning experience in Lockhart ISD,” said Superintendent Susan Bohn. “Our students deserve the best opportunities, and with leaders like Annie Colvin, our #LISDChampions are better prepared for success.”
