ABOUT

My name is Kimberly Nguyen (pronounced win) and this is my 10th year teaching third grade at Commonwealth Elementary. I’ve attended Fort Bend ISD schools growing up and am delighted to be teaching in the district that helped me flourish. In 2007, I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science in Teaching and Learning. I also earned certifications to teach ESL, GT, and special education students. I student taught here at Commonwealth during my last semester of college and absolutely loved this school and its students. During my first year of teaching, I was awarded Rookie Teacher of the Year for all of FBISD! I’m thankful for that honor and acknowledgment.

I have a great passion for teaching and work hard to engage students in learning through lessons that are hands-on and incorporate the arts. I enjoy working with children and helping them reach for their dreams and seeing the leader within through their education. I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect. An education should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world. I believe in open and honest communication with all parents to help our children be successful. The best way to get in touch with me is through email, as I frequently check it.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My joy is baking and decorating all sorts of desserts. I made the egg sugar cookies you see as the background image here! For the past few years, I have practiced my calligraphy skills through a local calligrapher and especially love using gold ink. Last summer, I spent about two months traveling around Japan and Korea. My explorations included a lot of unique and delicious food and exploring the great outdoors. After I came home, I fulfilled my dream of attending San Diego Comic-Con at the end of July. It was every geek’s dream and more!

It is going to be a wonderful year and I am very excited to work with you and your children.

I’m at the Cup Ramen Museum in Yokohama. I made my own ramen!
