Description: I am originally from Vietnam and immigrated to the US when I was a teenager. I appreciated the opportunity to view and experience different perspectives and cultures. It opens one’s mind and heart and humbles the self. It dares me to experience and embrace both Buddhism and Christianity. I studied and worked as an electrical engineer and opened my own computer shop but finally found my passion in teaching. I am committed to bring out the best from each and every one of my students. After 13 years working in Dallas Independent School District and 6 years at Shanghai American School, I was so fortunate to able return to Saigon last year and have the privilege to serve students at Renaissance International School Saigon.
