I am a Khmer killing field survivor. I came to America in 1987 and earned three AA degrees in two years, a BA from UC Berkeley in 1993, a MA, and a PhD. AMA!
Hi, I am David Ley, and my 13 years old son, Victor, who helped introducing me into this website. Currently, I am a math teacher at John F Kennedy HS in Montgomery county, Maryland. I was 9 years old when the Cambodian Communist seized power in 1975. I arrived in California with very limited English skills in Dec. 1987. With hard work, persistent, and determination, I was able to earn several college degrees with full scholarships and grants from AA to PhD degrees. My wife, Laura, and I have three smart and handsome sons and we own a nail salon and rental properties.
