Ms. Nguyen earned her undergraduate degree at CSULB and teaching credential and Masters in teaching at UCI. Previously, as a YMCA program leader, Ms. Nguyen led project-based lessons that gave students hands-on experiences to develop practical skills needed to be successful, life-long learners. During her time as a behavioral technician, she also supported students on the spectrum that had a variety of behavioral and learning goals. And so, her experience working with a wide range of K-8 students has given her the funds of knowledge to use best teaching practices for her students. She enjoys reading and writing and loves seeing her students engage in new books. When she is not teaching, Ms. Nguyen is traveling, exploring new restaurants or food, and enjoying the sun at the beach.
