Congratulations to NLU alumna, Huong Banh, Fulbright Scholarship winner.
Ms. Huong Banh is one of 16 teachers in the United States to receive this award. A short documentary was created to accompany the presentation and share this teacher’s experiences. One of the things that Ms. Banh mentions is her good fortune in having received a scholarship to attend National-Louis University. Banh obtained her B.A. in Elementary Education and M.Ed. in Technology in Education at NLU. Those opportunities ultimately led her to apply for a teaching position in district 65. She is a veteran ESL teacher, who personally knows the struggles that children face with a new language and culture.
