Poor ManagementSince starting here, I rarely know what's happening and when, usually until the very last minute. Recently, the principal at my school was forced out by management, and the new principal is micromanaging everything in sight. This has made for an even more stressful work environment and even more reasons to be glad I am leaving at the end of the school year.

Depending on the village and the principal the experience can varySome villages will have a culture that can be hostile to teachers whereas others will be much more open. It was important to develop rapport with my student's parents, but only over time. Generally the first year is difficult because neither the students nor their families know you and this is crucial. I learned a vast amount about teaching and most of what I learned in school I had to let go of because of the situations in Cree villages. So much of the teaching there involved a teacher's rapport with their students and families. Also, one has to teach to do a lot of differentiation and it is best always work with your colleagues. My experience with administrations in the Cree School Board is varied. There are some principals who have a clear understanding and vision that they implement and there are others who struggle. Often, villages like to have a principal who is local and this sets up a struggle because an administrator has conflicting loyalties to families in the village and members of their staff who are often from out of town. In some villages, the culture is very open and supportive and some can have cliquish, exclusionary groups. Once again, I find a person has to make it past the first year before they really begin to fit in. If you are a teacher from southern Canada, I found it difficult to be so far away from home. I was able to buy most of the food that I like. I was happy to visit my family at Christmas and what is called Spring Break as well as 6 weeks off in the summer, but still I missed my family. A wonderful thing is to eventually see that I have made a connection with some children who come from a very different background than my own. Kids are kids and people are people, but there is a difference of world views between "The South" in Canada and Cree life in Northern Quebec. Learning this difference and how to respect and work with it on a day to day basis is fun in and of itself. Furthermore, to see children respond to how you asked them to work and to see them grow in confidence is very precious. Also, when family members eventually approach you and I can sense a trust or respect from them, it is a wonderful gift. I will say that this is more likely to happen in some communities than in others. However, if a person is willing to put in the work of participating in the community and learning what they are about with humility and respect, the rewards can be, as I said, wonderful.

Sometimes Challenging ClientsI found it difficult teaching the students I had. They were reading, writing and learning math two, three and four grade levels lower than students in urban centres. They were often off-task and uncooperative.
