Hello Friends and Families,
My name is Bobbi Nguyen. I was born in Vietnam and came to the United States in 1977. I speak English, Vietnamese, and very limited Chinese. I have taught 5 years overseas in Taiwan and Vietnam in an international school setting. While there, I worked as a first and second grade classroom teacher, high school English Language and geography teacher and extended day computer and art teacher. Upon returning from Asia in 1997, I substitute taught for St.Paul and Forest Lake School districts for a year. Since 1998, I have been working for SPPS as a classroom teacher in grades 1-4 and an English Language teacher in the primary grades since 2007. I love working with a diverse population of teachers and students especially with English language learners. They are hard workers and are motivated to learn which make my job so much enjoyable! I look forward to another great year working with your child!
Outside of work, I'm constantly learning about and working on home projects, gardening, traveling and photography. I also love the arts. I enjoy listening to classical music and attending art shows, theatrical plays and opera singing. Furthermore, I love playing and/or watching sports particularly table tennis, tennis, volleyball, badmitton and football.
