Ms. Bobbi Nguyen
Xin Chao Friends and Families,
My name is Bobbi Nguyen. I was born in Vietnam and came to the United States in 1977. Aside from English, I speak Vietnamese and very limited Chinese. After graduating from the University of Minnesota, I traveled overseas and 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, geography and biology teacher. In addition, I taught preschool, extended day computer and art. On the weekends, I volunteered to co-coach Liittle League Baseball teams.
After 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, specifically in grades 1-4 for SPPS. Since 2007, I have been an English Language (EL) teacher. I enjoy working with a diverse population of students and teachers. I especially love working with English language learners. They are studious and motivated learners which help make my job truly enjoyable! I'm excited and look forward to working with you and your children!
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, dont' hesitate to contact me. Have a phenonmenal day!
