Year Appointed: 2015
William & Mary, Environmental Geology – B.S.

“Keeping students interested in pursuing scientific careers was my primary motivation to become a teacher,” says Ms. Nguyen. “I think science classes should be taught by people who love science”. Ms. Nguyen uses her love of science to inspire scientific curiosity in the students who take her Biology and Chemistry classes at CBGS.

Her students learn skills such as collaboration, presentation, and critical and analytical thinking, which will serve them well whichever field they choose to pursue. Ms. Nguyen has also enjoyed participating in field studies with her students. “Discussing the complex biochemical pathways in photosynthesis in class is one thing, but taking field samples to calculate primary productivity gives the hands-on experience that will cement the concept.”

She looks forward to watching her students make connections and come up with solutions to the world’s environmental problems, both on a local and global scale. Ms. Nguyen also likes to cook and spend time with her husband, three children, and two cats.
