What Our Staff is Saying…
My work experience with ET has been phenomenal. Working in such a positive environment has allowed me to come out of my comfort zone and really trust and enjoy my job. ET is such an amazing organization that has really opened my eyes about struggles within the world.
From being a pretty conservative person, I had opened up in ways I didn’t expect to in a work environment. I have met lots of great people, gained knowledge about teaching, resources, and Indigenous communities. This job inspired me and brought out new passions I never knew I had, and for that I am very grateful.
Elephant Thoughts gave me the opportunity to work with youth in an engaging and meaningful manner that allowed me to realize that teaching is what I wanted to do with my life. It gave me the work and life experiences possible to enter the teaching profession, and for that I am eternally grateful.
What I’ve enjoyed most in my tenure with Elephant Thoughts is watching students finally grasp concepts that they have been struggling with in the classroom and the look of pure joy come across their face. Elephant Thoughts provides a nurturing community that allowed me to realize that I would like to continue working in the education sector. Currently. I am in the midst of completing my Masters of Education at the University of British Columbia.
Working with Elephant Thoughts taught me so many transferable skills. I learned to problem solve, multitask, and so much more. It also helped me to understand how I wanted to move forward with my personal and professional life. The
experience I gained with ET helped shape my future and who I am.
Working for Elephant Thoughts allowed me opportunities to work within several Cree School Board schools and revitalized my dream of becoming a teacher. This experience allowed me to get into the teaching profession and develop my approach to teaching. Elephant Thoughts training and programs taught me about pedagogical and cultural approaches that work for First Nations students and their unique realities.
