Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. St.Cyr

Hi Obama scholars and families!  I'm excited to be working in the Barack and Michelle Obama library.  I have been teaching for 31 years with students from grades preK - 12 grade.  I enjoy finding the perfect book for each student and hearing them say that they love books!  I also really like teaching research skills.  Doing research is like being a detective; you never know what you'll find out.  

I have teaching degrees in Elementary Education, Reading Instruction, English as a Second Language, and Library/Information Science.  I got both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees at St. Cloud State University.

I grew up in the Twin Cities and still live in Minneapolis.  I enjoy going to plays (especially musicals), being around the lakes, gardening, crochet, and cross-stitch.  And, of course, I LOVE to read.  Mystery stories are my favorite.
