Kathy Boyd- Librarian

Hello My Name Is...

Kathy Boyd

I love my job as District Librarian at HISD.  Growing up I never even thought about being a librarian.   17 years ago, I got this opportunity and it has been a great experience.  I wake up each day excited to go to work.  I love working with students and doing my best to find a book that will personally fit them.  I love seeing a student find THE BOOK and then get excited about reading.   This job is very rewarding and I am blessed to be a part of the HISD family.

I grew up in San Augustine, Tx.  I graduated from San Augustine HS in 1983.  I attended East Texas Baptist College and graduated in 1987 with a Bachelor of Science degree in business.   I married my best friend, Jason Boyd, (Hawkins Middle School Principal) August 1987.   I worked in the business world 3 years and then was blessed to be a stay at home Mom to two girls.  They are both graduates of Hawkins: Savannah 2008 and Bethany 2011.   After a few coaching tours, we made our home in Hawkins, Texas.  During my time at home with the girls, I received my teaching certification in business and elementary education.    I became the librarian in 1999.

I strive to make the libraries in our district inviting to our students.  I want them to find a love for reading that will extend into their adult life.

My library door is always open.  Feel free to come by or you may contact me at 903-769-0574 or email me at kathy.boyd@hawkinsisd.org
