Ms. Bobbi Nguyen

Xin chào Friends and Families,

My name is Bobbi Nguyen.  This school year, 2019-20, will be an exciting year for me! This year I'm in a split position between Horace Mann School (HMS) and Highland Park Elementary School (HPE).  I will be at HMS in the morning and at HPE in the afternoon.  Although this is my first year at both schools, this is my 28th year as a teacher.  Upon graduating from the University of Minnesota in Elementary Education in 1991, I traveled overseas and taught 5 years at international schools in Taiwan and Vietnam.  While there, I was a preschool, first and second grade classroom teacher.  I was also a high school ESL, geography and biology teacher.

After returning from Asia in 1997, I worked as a classroom teacher, specifically in grades 1-4 for SPPS.  Since 2007, I have been an English Language (EL) teacher.  I'm licensed to teach K-12 but most of my time has been in an elementary setting.  I enjoy working with a diverse population of students and teachers.  I especially love working with English language learners. They are diligent and motivated learners which help make my job truly enjoyable!

On a personal side, I was born in Vietnam and came to the United States in 1977.  Aside from English, I speak Vietnamese and very limited Chinese. Outside of work, I'm constantly learning and working on home projects.  I find gardening, traveling, reading and photography to be relaxing. I also love the arts.  I’m fond of listening to classical music and attending art shows, theatrical plays and the opera.  Furthermore, I love playing and/or watching sports particularly table tennis, tennis, volleyball, badmitton and football.

If you have questions or comments, don't hesitate to contact me.  Make it a great year!
