Howdy, my name is Linh Nguyen (pronounced “Lynn Win”) and I am honored to be a member of HeadStart this 2021-2022 academic year. I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, but I consider Texas to be home. I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and Education in 2014. This year will be my 8th year of teaching secondary Maths (4 years in Texas and 4 years in Phuket). I believe my upbringing, values, and experiences as a Vietnamese American have carried over into my career as an educator and altered my perspective of teaching. Through discovery, critical thinking, problem solving, and cooperative learning in my class, I hope to instill values of education, compassion, service and community within my students. I am as passionate about academics as I am about staying physically active and being involved in community service, and I try to bring each of these aspects of my life into my teaching and interactions with my students.
