Remote and Red Dirt
I am a teacher because I love working with young people and being able to make a positive impact on the lives of my students. I work in the Kimberley region in a remote location. It has changed my life and I am excited to continue working with Indigenous students for the rest of my life in the North West. Remote sure has it's challenges but is the most rewarding job I've ever had. The lives of my students have impacted me greatly; they are so resilient and seeing these students progress in many different aspects is incredible to watch. I've learnt so much from these students and their families. It is an absolute privilege and honour to teach and work with community. It's my dream to continue to invest my life into Indigenous education and be a part of change. I know I will not regret this decision, when I'm 55 plus and reminiscing of all those years teaching remote and regional parts of the Kimberley. I love my job and where I work; I am so grateful for this.
