    First Nations Schools

    I have taught in Canada at First Nations schools for 7 years. I know that it is different from the US reservations in some ways. People often tell me that I could write a book with all the things that have happened to me. Yet I find it very rewarding most of the time. For three years I taught and lived right on the reserve and that was very hard. You must remember that there is only so much you can do or you will burn yourself out. Listen to them and offer them stability in terms of rules and things. I also find it a great opportunity for me to learn about their culture. It seemed like when I was interested in their culture and asked questions and tried things they accepted more about who they were and felt better about themselves. Anyway, I am not sure what you are looking for but feel free to email me if you want.
