Description: I started teaching Year 1 Vietnamese during club time at Renaissance in 2010-2011. This gave me an interest in teaching Vietnamese, as well as, English. I applied to study to become an official Vietnamese Language Teacher at The University of Pedagogy. In 2013-2014, I got the support from the school to become a Vietnamese Language Teacher for Primary. Together with Ms Quyen and Ms Tram, we have a wonderful Vietnamese Language and Culture (VLC) department. My team will try to deliver the best possible knowledge when teaching Vietnamese and Vietnamese Culture to our students and this will be combined with lots of fun and it will be a wonderful time. Like many traditional Vietnamese women, in my spare time I enjoy cooking, gardening and taking care of the family with my 2 children.
