Patricia's Connections
Patricia Keister

I have lived and taught in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam for the past six years and have just begun my seventh school year here as an early childhood educator. 

It is my goal to make every child in my class feel safe, valued, and confident to explore and discover new ideas. 

I believe in being a life-long learner and am always trying to improve and better my teaching through further education, professional development opportunities, or self-conducted research.
