How long have you worked for LPS?
Twenty-six years.

What inspired you to become part of the education field at LPS?
I wanted to have a positive, inspiring impact on children's lives, especially refugees and immigrants.

What has been your favorite part of working here? What aspect of your job do you find most rewarding?
I love meeting all the families and children from different countries and learning about their culture.

Did you attend LPS as a student? If so, which school(s)? If not, where are you from?
I'm from Vietnam, and I attended a  Lincoln private school from sixth to eighth grade and graduated from Lincoln Northeast High School.

What path did you take after completing your formal education?
I attended and graduated from Lincoln School of Commerce in business programs and continued my education at Doane University in psychology. 

What do you enjoy most about the Lincoln community?
I like the diversity, and it is a good city to raise children with many friendly and kind people.

What is your favorite childhood book or a book that has influenced your life positively?
My favorite book is “All Around Me.” It influenced me in many ways discovering a brand new country, city and people that I had to adapt to. 

Share a shout out to a former teacher who impacted your life.
I have many teachers who impacted my life, but the person who impacted my life the most is Mrs. Susan Johnson, my first ELL teacher at Lincoln Northeast High. I was struggling with my English, and it was holding me back in many classes that I thought I wouldn't be able to keep up with all my regular classes to graduate on time. I remember she told me, "You can make it happen," and I did.
