As a Southern California native, Kevin Nguyen attended UC Irvine, where he also served as president of the school's Vietnamese Catholic community. Upon completing his undergraduate studies, he volunteered for a year through the Jesuit Volunteer Corps at Verbum Dei High School in South Los Angeles. He then went on to Loyola Marymount University, where he completed his Masters in Secondary Education and returned to teach high school English at Verbum Dei.
I am excited to join the OLP community this year. The core of my educational philosophy can be summed up in four words: "Respect. Educate. Advocate. Lead."
