From immigrant to student to teacher

Her life shaped by a non-traditional school

Nhi Manh Chung life was transformed from immigrant to student to teacher by her non-traditional school experience

In this eye-opening, often heart-wrenching just published memoir, Nhi (Nancy) Manh Chung tells of escaping Vietnam by boat (three of her family members didn't survive the journey) and settling in New York City. Her hardships gradually ease as she works her way through alternative school then college, marries, and works as a bilingual teacher at Auxiliary Services for High Schools.

Share her life of sadness, happiness, self-discovery, her life as a teacher, and her admirable survivor's strength.
