Candace Nguyen

Hello hello! My name is Ms. Candace.

My goal is for all students to realize they are capable learners. I'm excited for my students to go on a journey with me to see the beauty and value in math beyond the conventional classroom.

For me, math is all about experimentation, collaboration, conjecture-making, and truth-seeking. It was quite the journey for me to realize it as a student who hated math back in high school. So, I hope for all my students to develop that sense of a growth mindset as we go through the year and learn to make as many mistakes as possible while asking questions.
