Hello students,
Welcome to a new school year, one that promises to bring new, challenging and exciting learning experiences. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.
I was born and raised in Saigon, Viet Nam, and obtained a high school diploma from Marie Curie High School before coming to the United States. I attended CSU Fullerton and earned a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics. After completion of the credential program, I taught at Doig Intermediate for a semester. In the fall of 1995, I transferred to Rancho Alamitos High School and have made "the Ranch" my second home for 23 years.
I have taught Algebra 1P/2P, Geometry, Pre-Calculus and have been teaching AP Calculus AB/BC ever since.  I have high expectations for all students and hope that, through teaching, I will be able to instill in each student the appreciation for the beauty of mathematics and the value of diligent work. In my class, students do not just learn math standards, they also learn organization, an important skill that will help them in school now and in many other aspects of life in the future.
I am, understandably, fluent in Vietnamese. I have been happily married to my soulmate, Phuong Vu, for over 25 years. When I am not teaching, I enjoy being a mom to my two lovely daughters: Christina, who is a high school math teacher, and little daughter, Catherine, who starts her sophomore year in college this fall working toward her goal to become an English teacher. In my free time, I mostly spend my days gardening with my husband in the front and back yard. My other hobbies include shopping, traveling, playing piano, and singing in church choir, which I have been participating in for more than 30 years.

I look forward to working with you this year.  To get connected with all your class information and assignments, please join me at using your account.  
Happy learning!
