Ms. Locke

Welcome Back to School!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Summer Break and is ready for a fun and exciting school year. For those of you who may not know me I'm Cynthia Locke. This will be my 18th year here at Normal Park Museum Magnet Lower and I have enjoyed every minute! I have been teaching for 24 years now and have experience in teaching Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 6th grades. I have two master’s degrees which include Reading along with Library and Informational Science.

A new school year is an exciting time for children, teachers, and parents. It means making new friends, taking part in new activities, learning new skills, and trying new things. In the library, many exciting events are planned for this year including integrating library activities in conjunction with literacy centers. 
The library curriculum is aligned with the National School Library Standards for Learners, School Librarians, and School Libraries from the American Association of School Librarians in order to meet the needs of all patrons. 
I look forward to an exciting year with your children as they are encouraged to READ, READ, READ!
