Laura Nguyen

I am Laura Nguyen and this is my 17th year in education.  I graduated from Henderson State University in Arkansas.  I am certified to teach kindergarten-6th grade, ESL and GT.  I taught kindergarten in McKinney ISD for five years before taking time off to raise my two wonderful children.  I returned to teach kindergarten and first grade before joining the GATE Academy.  I am thrilled to be a part of teaching gifted learners at the GATE Academy! 

My husband, Tien and I are blessed with two children.  Our daughter is starting her freshman year at the University of Oklahoma and our son is a sophmore in high school.  We also have a sweet dog named Sadie who LOVES me which drives my kids crazy sometimes.  :)  She follows me around all day long!  My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family.    

I look forward to helping your child grow as a learner and meet his/her potential in first grade.  We are going to have a great time exploring, investigating, questioning, collaborating and learning this year!
