My name is Thy-Dung Nguyen (Mrs. Nguyen). I'm an English Language (EL) teacher. I work with first grade English Language Learners (ELLs) whom English is not their primary language. I provide teaching services that foucs on English language development in reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
I’ve been teaching in Saint Paul Public Schools since 2000. This is my fifth year teaching at Frost Lake Elementary. I, myself, learned English as a second language. I came to the United State at age 13 knowing no words of English. I am a proud St. Paul high school graduate! My former ESL teacher from Como Park Senior High School was my inspiration to become an EL teacher. I believe in education because it is an open door for many posibilities and opportunities.
I'm grateful to work with a passionated and well trained team. We're commited to collaboration and partnership for the success of your child's education. I am excited to work with you and your child this school year. I look forward to collaborating with our 1st grade team to help your child to learn and grow confidently at Frost Lake.
