Mrs. Hue Phan
My name is Hue Phan and I would like to reach out as the new Vice Principal of Heights Elementary School. I am very honored of this opportunity and I look forward to working with everyone.
A little background on myself, I have worked in the Pittsburg Unified School District for 17 years, 16 years as a teacher and one year as a BTSA mentor last year. As a BTSA mentor, I supported and helped new teachers in our district. I am the oldest of nine children from a first generation immigrant family. With this came with many responsibilities at a very young age. I mentored and supported my younger siblings with their homework and attended teacher/parents’ conferences on my parents behalf (as they did not speak English). I started working since age 15 to financially help support my siblings. I guided them through their personal, educational, and professional decisions. These experiences made me realized at a young age that I wanted to make a difference in the world and become a teacher. As a teacher, I taught 2nd- 4th grade at Willow Cove Elementary School. I love teaching and it is a passion that I greatly enjoy. As a teacher, I was able to annually help at least 85% of my students achieve proficiency or advanced levels. Through the years, I often have students come back to thank me before they attend college. This is one of the most rewarding moments as a teacher and this continues to motivate me. Knowing that I made a difference and a positive impact in each and every student’s life, makes me want to make a bigger impact and influence more students. I hope to accomplish this goal as the new vice principal of Heights Elementary School. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such a dedicated and supportive community. Once again, I look forward to meeting and working with all the parents, grandparents, and guardians at Heights. Together, we can help all students thrive and achieve academic success. Thank you!
