Thank you for your interest in me as an educator. I am a 5th grade teacher at Meadows Elementary School and have been working for the Franklin-McKinley School District for 16 years. I have a bachelor's and a master's degree from the University of California at Berkeley and started my teaching career right after college. Coming to the United States as a young child from Vietnam, I am grateful for all the choices and options my public school education has provided me. I became a teacher to ensure that my students also have the same opportunities for an excellent education. I truly love working with the students and families here at Meadows!
