Hi my name is Van Phan, I am twenty-two years old, and I am currently a full time student at the University of Houston. My dreams and aspirations are to become the best elementary teacher I can be. I love working with kids and seeing them grow and improve is the most satisfying feeling one can ever have. This is my first year as a student teacher and I am so grateful and honored to be a part of the education program at UH. I am extremely excited to start teaching and I can't wait for this year to kickoff! I hope to become a better learner and educator throughout this course and use the many resources NSTA has to offer.
