Coming to this forum has given me a voice to, address some of the issues that I'm facing, but also connect with other educators to see how they face those challenges and get ideas of how we can, you know, work through them.
I think that partnership is the key.
We're sharing ideas and working, together.
I think the coming together of education across the state and particularly our rural and remote communities as well, and seeing what their views are, how they're going having the voices there of the people.
I think that's ecstatic.
And we bring that experience back to community to help implement into our services back in communities so that we're able to, influence health services, our child care centers, our activity centers in remote communities.
Having everyone here is a great blessing.
You hear what others face.
The work that we are collectively bringing together.
It's just a collective wisdom that's just not only going to benefit us as workers and organizations, it's going to change the future of our nation.
To have a voice in the department so that they can hear from us directly is really important because each region has different challenges and we need that support behind us so that we can give everything to help these kids and families succeed and have a better future.
