Degrees and Certifications:
I am Laura Nguyen and this is my 16th 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 that will both be in high school this year. Our daughter is a senior and our son is a freshman. They are excited to have a year of high school together before she heads off to college! 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!
