The El Dorado County Office of Education (EDCOE) proudly honored Anne Tignanelli with the Excellence in Education award for a classified team member during their recent Team Member Recognition event. Dr. Ed Manansala, El Dorado County Superintendent of Schools, commended Anne for her dedication and service.

Anne has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to education through her varied and impactful career. With a master’s in library and information science from San Jose State University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude, and a bachelor's in humanities and cultural studies from Dominican University of California, Anne's academic prowess has been the backbone of her professional excellence.

Beginning her journey in educational libraries, Anne excelled in assisting students with complex research and collaborating with faculty to enhance academic resources. Her roles extended into museums and local organizations, where she managed valuable collections and created engaging displays.

Initially joining the EDCOE team in 2021 as a substitute, Anne quickly became a fixture across multiple departments. She found her permanent place at the EDCOE front desk, where she cultivated a culture of warmth and helpfulness. Known for her welcoming displays and bright smile, she consistently goes above and beyond to assist colleagues and visitors alike. She is also celebrated for her role as a community cheerleader, baking treats for various occasions and offering support and encouragement to those in need.

"Anne creates intentional relationships while providing exceptional service and a welcoming atmosphere," said Dr. Manansala during the award presentation. "She is our number one cheerleader and a confidential, quiet ear for those who need her. For her outstanding contributions and overwhelming impact, it is my honor to present this award to Anne Tignanelli."

Outside of her professional life, Anne cherishes her role as a mother. Her daughter Ginny, residing in Portland, spoke of her mother with great affection and respect, highlighting her emotional intelligence and protective nature.

For her relentless pursuit of excellence and kind heart, Anne Tignanelli was met with resounding applause as she received her award. Her story is a testament to the power of dedication and the profound effect one individual can have.
