Favorite Quotation: 

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” ― Mother Teresa


Why I Teach:

It’s a calling that God has given me.  As a Catholic School teacher, I’m called to motivate, inspire, and challenge my students to grow in faith and knowledge.   I love what I do because I can talk about God!


You want to know something awesome?   Two of my former students have become religious sisters!!!  How cool is that?

Where I have lived: 

I was born in Pennsylvania.   My family was sponsored by a Catholic Church in Fairmont, West Virginia  because we were refugees from Vietnam.  We moved to Bay City, Texas where I grew up.  I have also lived in Lincoln, Nebraska and St. Louis, Missouri.

Fourth Grade Teacher at Saint Elizabeth Catholic School in Keller, TX for 5 years.

Second, Third, and Fourth Grade Teacher at St. Joseph Catholic School for the past ten years.


My Family: 

My husband Ngoc and I are parishioners at St. Joseph Catholic Church.   We've been married for 10 years and live in Sachse.  Our wonderful twins, Lucas and Erin attend St. Joseph Catholic School.


Something you might not know about me:

 My favorite thing to do during my spare time is to bake & cook!!!!   I love to watch the Food Network.  My favorite show is Master Chef, and my favorite cook is Ree Drummond.


My prayer for my students:

Father, May everything we do begin with your inspiration and continue with your saving help.  Let our work always find its origin in you and through you reach completion. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen
