Howdy, my name is Linh Nguyen (pronounced “Lynn Win”) and I am a Secondary Maths Teacher, as well as the Homeroom Teacher for Year 8 Yellow. I joined HeadStart last year in 2021 and am excited for this year ahead. This upcoming academic year will be my 9th year of teaching Secondary Maths (4 years in Texas and 5 years in Phuket). I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and Education. I believe my upbringing, values and experiences as a Vietnamese American have carried over into my career as an educator and widened my perspective of teaching and how I connect with my diverse group of students. With a devoted outlook towards lessons, I hope to instill work ethics and the value of compassion and community. I challenge them to be independent learners, who are resilient and will accept and learn from their mistakes, but also to be cooperative learners, who are not afraid to ask for help and work through the problem together. My door is always open if you need anything. I am looking forward to the next academic year, seeing familiar faces and getting to know the new students at HeadStart. And I can’t wait to see what this year holds for us! Let’s make this year a memorable one, y’all!
