Mr. Andrew Truong
May 12, 2023
For Teacher Appreciation Week this year, I am honoring math teacher Mr. Andrew Truong. I had Mr. Truong last year as a junior for pre-calculus, and I can honestly say that not only have I communicated with him just as frequently this year (despite unfortunately not having a class with him), but I feel that we have grown even closer. In the classroom, he is an excellent teacher and always takes the time to ensure that every student understands exactly what he is teaching at all times. He is exceptional at taking adequate time and setting an appropriate pace that everyone can keep up with while also ensuring that the lesson never drags and always keeps moving. He makes class very enjoyable for everyone and always is very honest and upfront with everything, making the experience very refreshing.
On top of this, he is a very kind and genuine person who has been incredibly helpful with anything and everything that I have ever gone to him for. He truly cares about what his students are doing both academically and with extracurricular activities outside of the classroom. He has truly made a legitimate impact on my life and I’m sure that many others feel the same way. It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know him over the past two years, which is exactly why I am honoring him this week. When interviewed by the Lancer Ledger, Truong explained, “I enjoy seeing students succeed both in and out of the classroom.”
