    Hello Kindergarten families!
    I'm Mrs. Nguyen (pronounced "win")! I am so excited to have you and your kindergartener along for our 2020-2021 school year journey. This is my 4th year teaching kindergarten at Emerson and I am SO lucky to be on a team of such strong and talented kindergarten teachers. Having taught for over a decade, it is safe to say teaching kindergarten is my most favorite, and being at Emerson is amazing.

     The start of a "normal" kindergarten year can come with many questions and concerns. As we navigate remote learning together, please feel free to contact me anytime with any concern you may have (contact information below). I am excited to get to know you and your family and can't wait to see all the great work we will do together!








    COVID-19 Closure Update (2020-2021): As we navigate these new times together, I am here to help you and support you in any way you need. You will find a link to our Canvas classroom on my website soon. Although it is hard to have such a different start to our school year, I look forward to getting to know your kindergartener over the coming weeks, growing strong relationships, and helping your students grow and thrive. The most important thing is that you stay safe in these uncertain times. So much love to you and your family. Stay healthy, keep doing things that bring happiness to you and yours, and know that I am here to support and guide you through.

Mrs. Nguyen


I was born in Delaware and grew up in Florida. I attended the University of North Florida (Jacksonville, FL) and earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (K-6) as well as my Master's degree in Instructional Technology. I also earned my ELL endorsement.

I moved to Washington in 2008. I enjoy teaching, but really enjoy the fact that education is ever changing. There is really no better feeling than seeing a student of mine having a "light bulb" moment, where they are mastering something that was taught. I believe in building a positive mindset in my classroom and work hard to make sure my students know I believe in them, and they will achieve what they set their minds on!
