I migrated to the USA from Vietnam in 1991 and served in the US Army before went to college. In my spare time I love reading and enjoy traveling with my family. I am married and have three children.
My Education and Professional Background
I earned a BA in Economics and Minor in Computer Science from UC Berkeley in 1998. I worked in the Software Industry in San Jose, CA for three years. In 2001 I got married and moved to Arizona to join my husband. I got the Secondary Education teaching certificate and started teaching in 2004. I taught Math and Computer Science at Mesquite HS for three years, Math at Maricopa HS for 5 years. In 2014 I started teaching for Chandler Unified School District, at Hamilton and Chandler HS. Now I am teaching at Arizona College Prep - Erie.
My Educational Philosophy
I have grown a lot in my education career. Struggling students are the ones who really need me to teach them; excelling ones only need me to guide them. The education system should form a whole person, not just Math, English, Science, or Social Study. We are empowering the students by challenging them to access learning material at their level and skill to ensure their success and growth. The students and I have a common goal, always reach for the stars! And I believe that every student should learn about computer science because we are living in the era of 4.0 Industrial Revolutionary.
