Mr. Phan is truly passionate about mathematics. From the first moment we met him at open house 4 years ago, WE became excited about math! He teaches with such a zeal that he inspires his students to do their best and strive to learn more. As the coach for Academic Decathlon, he continues to inspire and to motivate his students to constantly improve their skills. He has taught 2 of my children who are Sophmore's at Barrett the Honor's College at ASU. Both joined Academic Decathlon because of Mr. Phan and my son was so inspired by Mr. Phan that he chose to major in Math at ASU. He is now a TA for 2 Calculus classes at ASU. My daughter was also inspired by Mr. Phan and, combined with her love for science and math, is now majoring in Chemical Engineering at ASU. We are proud to have had Mr. Phan teach our children and know that their lives were profoundly impacted by him.
