Nguyen D. Saari began as a Bilingual Teaching Associate (BTA) in 1982 for the Elk Grove Unified School District.  She worked with Vietnamese students and families from Rutter Middle School and David Reese and Samuel Kennedy Elementary Schools, along with other schools serving Vietnamese speaking students. In the early ninety's she moved to “State and Federal Programs” in the  Elk Grove Unified District Office where she coordinated the BTA program. Years before Nguyen retired in 2012, she was awarded EGUSD Employee of the year. Along with her EGUSD commitments, Nguyen volunteered her time to the Vietnamese community in all aspects of living and adapting to the American way of life. Her devotion was inspiring.  Nguyen's time was their time.
