Cynthia Otagan Ramos, MLS

Mabuhay! My name is Cynthia Ramos. I was born and raised in the Philippines where I started my teaching career. I earned my Bachelor in Arts/Bachelor in Secondary Education degree from the Philippine Normal University and my Master in Library Science degree from the University of North Texas.  I have been working in education for more than 20 years. I have served as an English teacher and as a middle school and early college high school librarian.

My passion is to plan, host, and coordinate learning and reading enrichment activities for students that push them to stretch their imagination and practice their creativity. I love stories in any form, whether they’re in books, movies, plays, or musicals! I also love traveling and visiting new places. But the time I most treasure is the moments I spend with my family.
