In 2003, Donna Gottardi answered an internet ad for a teaching job in the last town in northeastern China, on the border with Russia—in Chinese Siberia. Without knowing a word of Chinese, or a... More > single person in China, Gottardi booked a ticket to one of the greatest adventures of her lifetime. In a matter of weeks, she found herself in the front of a classroom full of Chinese teachers of English, in a place 10,000 miles from her friends, her family and her home. Find out how her trust in others and in herself opened a window into this rural Chinese outpost and to its people. Laugh along with the many interesting predicaments Gottardi finds herself in as one of the first Western educators to live and work in Fu Yuan and as the only native English speaker.
