Brief Biography: “School never came easy for me, I was an ESOL student and had the toughest time my first few years of school,” begins Ms. Dinh about her inspiration to teach. “It took a very dedicated teacher to show me my full potential. She believed in me and made me a confident learner. I want to be that for my students. Education can open so many doors but it takes devoted teachers to help students realize their dreams. Teaching allows you to tap into your students’ interests to help them recognize their true abilities and capabilities. I just want to help others and continue to learn from my colleagues and students, be a forever learner!”
Ms. Dinh considers herself “a crazy dog mom.” She has an adopted dog named Cookie and has “been consumed by her and her quirks!” Ms. Dinh also loves to hike and bike, get fresh air, explore new places and travel anywhere and everywhere.
