Ms. Nguyen

 
Hello! Xin Chào!
 
Welcome English language learners (ELL) and families! My name is Ms. Bobbi Nguyen. This school year, 2022-23, is my 4th year at HPE as an EL teacher!  Prior to that, I taught at 7 other schools in a span of 30 years, mainly as a classroom teacher and as an English Language (EL) teacher.  I started my career teaching at international schools in Taiwan and Vietnam (my homeland) after graduating from the University of Minnesota.  After 5 years abroad, I returned to the United States and continued working as a classroom teacher.  In 2007, I switched roles and became an EL teacher.  I enjoy working in this current position as I feel I can deliver more academic content to the students. In addition, working with students in a smaller group setting allows time to build stronger communities and relationships. 
 
This school year, we are very fortunate to have 3 full-time EL teachers.  Because of the extra support, I will be servicing mainly K-2 EL students.  I love working with this age group simply because they are very motivated learners.  
 
In my personal time, I enjoy working on home improvements, gardening/landscaping, flower arranging, traveling and reading.  I also enjoy watching and playing a variety of sports, including American football and table tennis.
 
I value honest partnership communication. Please reach out anytime if you have questions or concerns. I look forward to a fruitful school year!
