Ms. Bobbi Nguyen
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 at 3 different international schools in Taiwan and Vietnam. While there, I worked as a first and second grade classroom teacher, high school English Language teacher and geography teacher. In addition, I taught preschool, extended day computer and art. On the weekends, I volunteered to co-coach Liittle League Baseball teams.
Upon returning from Asia in 1997, I substitute taught a year for St.Paul and Forest Lake School districts. For the next 9 years, I was a classroom teacher particularly in grades 1-4 for SPPS. Since 2007, I have been an English Language (EL) teacher. I enjoy working with a diverse population of teachers and students. I especially love working with English language learners. They are studious and are motivated to learn which help make my job so much enjoyable! I look forward to another great year working with each and everyone of them.
Outside of work, I'm constantly learning and working on home projects. I find gardening, traveling 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 opera singing. Furthermore, I love playing and/or watching sports particularly table tennis, tennis, volleyball, badmitton and football.
