(Read Tan’s short unedited work-in-progress graphic memoir)
My name is Tan Lam, and I am the administrator at Seattle Mini Medical School (SMMS). I am very eager to begin the new journey at SMMS and become a part of the education community supporting students and families, through quality education that focus on STEM, Medicine, and Medical Mission.
I have always wanted to become a teacher or doctor. So why did I choose to become a teacher? As a former refugee, my high school teachers and college professors went the extra mile to help me through high school and college. To be a teacher, which is, in my opinion, is one the best ways to honor God, to repay my debt to America, and to show respect to my teachers. Finally, I want to help students who are “average” or at-risk, like I was to succeed in school and be admitted to some of the nation’s most prestigious colleges.
I want to thank you for allowing us to be an important part of your child’s life. You are the most important person in the education of your child. It is critical that we work together to ensure their success and communicate how best to combine our efforts. I look forward to meeting you and talking about your student’s success.
