Living and learning in a remote Aboriginal community
After working as a director in long day care and as an early childhood consultant for large non-profit organisations, Di Roberts shares her story about taking up a position as a teacher in a language revitalisation school in a remote Aboriginal community, Numbulwar in South East Arnhem land, Northern Territory.
Keeping Aboriginal voices close: Finding a third space in which to teach
This article shares how Kerryn Jones, Katrina Tjitayi, Penny Cook and Makinti Minutjukur worked together to provide leadership and advice to 10 schools in the remote communities of the Aṉangu (Aboriginal) people. As a team, they have supported early childhood teachers, often new graduates, working in preschools, playgroups and child and family centres in these communities.
