Mr. Thomas Nguyen

Welcome to Mr. Nguyen's 5th Grade Class! I am exstatic and looking forward to an extraordinary journey of tremendous learning with your child! 


This is my 3rd year as a teacher at James Patterson Elementary. I have taught previously here in FBISD for 5 years at Colony Meadows Elementary as a Group Leader for Extended Learning. During my senior year in College I student taught at Mission Glen Elementary. I was born and raised here in Houston Texas and went to Sugar Mill Elementary, Sugar Land Middle School, and Kempner High School. I graduated from University of Houston with a Bachelor's Degree in Teaching and Learning GO GOOGS! Something interesting about me is that I built my own computer, love basketball, and like to dance/sing as a hobby.


I have a teaching certificate of Early Childhood through 6th grade. My mission is to motivate and cultivate students to become life long learners. I am committed to assessing students' comforts and engaging students into the curriculum to help further their mastery in the content areas. As an educator, I will lead by example and always improve my own skills in all areas. I am a strong believer that it takes a village to raise a child. So creating that welcoming and safe environment is important, especially for younger learners. I will work hard to help students succeed by going above and beyond the call of duty to motivate students to reach their fullest potential. With that hard work, they will be able to succeed in achieving their dreams.
