Ms. Nhatrang Nguyen
Welcome to 4th grade! I'm Ms. Nguyen (pronounced "win") and I am thrilled to be a part of Cascade Elementary.
Born and raised in California, I moved to the Evergreen State last summer. Since I was young, I gravitated towards helping and working with children. When I entered my undergraduate program, it felt natural to be in education. In addition to earning my BA and Masters from SJSU and UCSC, I was an instructional aide at an elementary school and program specialist at a local children's museum. My various positions in these different environments led me to foster a classroom culture that is student-centered and inquiry-based.
My favorite thing about being a 4th grade teacher is seeing my students make that dramatic leap in thinking, from the concrete to the abstract. On our class website, you'll find general information, updates about student learning, and community resources. When I'm not in Portable 2, you can find me on the trails hiking, cheering on the Golden State Warriors, or crafting a new DIY project.
