My name is Tung Nguyen and I've been asked to be the new director at VR Tech through the rest of this school year.
Students always ask me how to pronounce my name and I'm always happy to tell that that it's easy – just "Mr. Win."
My new assignment began following the retirement announcement by Mrs. DeRoos, our former director.
After the holiday break, I heard Mrs. DeRoos describe how she spent time reflecting, and while she loved her role and responsibilities at VR Tech, she couldn't escape the desire to spend more time with her family.
Everyone here at VR Tech wishes Mrs. DeRoos a wonderful retirement filled with many new and fun adventures.
Mrs. DeRoos also said something that touched my heart. She said that it was "a privilege to be with the students at VR Tech" and that she was grateful to all of the parents who entrusted their sons and daughters to her care here on the VR Tech campus.
I want you to know that this strong commitment to your student will not change as we begin a new semester.
The VR Tech staff and I believe it's an honor to mentor and instruct your student, too.
I have been teaching math at VR Tech since the second year of its opening in 2010, and because of the passion I have for this program and our students, I went on to receive my masters in educational leadership as well.
I'm thankful for Mrs. DeRoos and for all she gave of herself for VR Tech.
I'm thankful for Superintendent Davis for his support and trust in choosing me as the new director at VR Tech.
And I'm thankful for you and your student.
I'm excited to partner with you in helping every VR Tech student achieve success and reach their full potential.
