Read about the Director, Tamara Nguyen

Hello everyone!  My name is Tamara Nguyen; I am the Childcare Director for Seacliff YMCA.  I’ve been working with children for eleven years and have been in the afterschool/childcare setting for the past six years of my career.  My discoveries for wanting to work with kids started in high school during my time as a youth leader for my church.  Based on that notion, I started looking into opportunities that would allow me to interact and teach kids.  Therefore, I obtained my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of California, Irvine.  Right after graduation, I got my first teaching related job as a Program Leader and then as a Site Coordinator for THINK Together, an afterschool program based in Santa Ana.  Since then, I’ve been working with children both in the teaching role and in the administrative role.

For a glimpse in my personal life, my interests lie in the love for cooking and baking.  I also try to stay health by going to Zumba, working out at the gym and or going bike riding.  I am also a fan of music so singing and dancing are something I am not shy of.

Thank you for taking the time to cruise through our Seacliff YMCA website.  If you have any questions or comments about enrolling your child at the Y,  please do not hesitate to contact with me using the information below.  I look forward to meeting you and your child!
