Annie Robinson

Giant Staff Member of the Month

Nominated by six coworkers and her administration, Annie Robinson is our Giant Staff Member of the Month for December 2020. Annie is known as an “awesome teacher.” Her colleagues describe her as completely selfless and all about students. Annie was diagnosed with cancer but has never let her treatment or disease stand in the way of her student’s learning. Even if Annie must teach from a computer in a separate room on campus, she will “do whatever it takes for her kids.” With a cafeteria filled with tears, Annie was defined as someone who is always smiling, an overcomer, and champion for students.
