“I encourage other Indigenous teachers to also apply to Teach For Canada because we need you a lot up here; you bring so much of your history, so much of your stories that you develop in your own territory. This isn’t my territory but I respect it because this is my family, these are my brothers and sisters, I cherish them just as much as I would in my own home territory.”
