Trustee Area 3:
Mrs. Tawny Robinson is a former teacher for Orange Unified, Corcoran Unified, and Kit Carson Union Schools. During her time in the classroom, she served on Planned Learning Committees, Positive Behavior Intervention Support Programs, Parent Teacher Associations, and president of School Site Councils. She is a previous Hanford Elementary School District Trustee and has completed four Masters in Governance courses for the California School Board Association. Mrs. Robinson has also been an after-school program coordinator, Children’s Liturgy Teacher for her church, a Co-Coordinator for Mothers of Preschoolers Int., a volunteer for numerous local fundraisers, and a reading instruction coach for our schools.
Most recently, she co-founded the Kings Literacy Initiative Pact with her late father-in-law, Mike Robinson. The initiative, “KLIP,” is a group of dedicated community members reaching out to equip teachers of Kings County with the necessary tools to better serve their students in the area of literacy instruction. Since 2017, KLIP has hosted and sponsored research-based literacy training and provided follow-up coaching support for close to 100 teachers, who are currently applying these reading instruction methods and strategies in their classrooms with great success. Administrators, teachers, parents, and students serviced with these strategies have seen life changing results in their academic abilities, confidence, and test scores.
Mrs. Robinson is honored to serve Kings County by representing the community members of Trustee Area 3 and looks forward to making a positive impact on education. She believes that the county board exists to serve our students by working with the superintendent and the community to ensure accountability and provide support for public education.
She resides in Hanford with her husband and four young children. Together, they enjoy being involved in the family’s local businesses, which have served the valley for nearly 40 years.
