My name is Lisa Dieu-Hien Trinh.
I am the owner and director of
Bebe Preschool. I was born in
South Vietnam and had been living
in the United States 3/4 of my life.
I was fortunate to inherit and adapt
the best of both worlds, the Eastern
and Western cultures.
I obtained a B.S. degree in Computer Sciences and had worked in the software industry for 16 years. However, it was not my first choice of a profession. I then pursued further in search for a career of my preference. Along the path, I had worked in the marketing area, the cosmetology area, and the aerospace area. Each field had enriched my life in many ways. Nevertheless, I now accumulate enough experience and gain enough wisdom to realize that teaching is my destiny. I embrace the entrepreneurial spirit and apply it to an area so central to my life: early childhood education and care.
The main factor that contributed to my decision derived from my devoted volunteer works as Artistic Director and Founder of a non-profit organization for Youth this since 1993 (www.wingsof100viet.org). Bebe Preschool is proud to be the main sponsor for Wings of 100 Viet Dance Company/Vũ Đoàn Cánh Chim Bách-Việt. As I have seen generations of kids who graduated from my program benefited significantly from it, became role models to their peers, and gave back to society; my satisfaction from this work is beyond any description and the best reward no money can buy.
I apply what I do best and enjoy most to become a preschool teacher. I feel that it is a nobility to be the first teacher in a child’s life. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to plant the seeds of social and emotional development as well as linguistic and cognitive competence to the children.
I was truly inspired by my mother and
late father to become a teacher for they
were educators their whole life.
- My father as Professor Trinh Chuyet
and his college students in 1961 - and
I am also thankful to my son, Joey the Champ, who is now in college and finally ready to share his Mom with other children.
- Joey The Champ as The Man in Charge -
With a passion at heart, I vision that being a Preschool Teacher is truly a rewarding path in my life and feel so blessed to have found this profession.
