The Koori Curriculum Educator Yarns Podcast is intended as a gift to our profession. I have met many educators since directing Koori Curriculum who have exceptionally innovative practice in relation to how they privilege Aboriginal perspectives in their program and curriculum.
Over the past six years I have traveled my country extensively and yarned with non-indigenous and Aboriginal educators alike whose stories have touched, comforted, provoked and motivated me. I felt it was important these stories be heard.
The Educator Yarns podcast invites educators on metaphorical road trip where together we will travel our nation unlearning, relearning whilst digging deeper and moving forward.
I am passionate about raising early childhood educators up and giving them a platform to share their story, enhance their advocacy efforts and receive praise for the important work they do. The educators that have been interviewed thus far have experienced equal challenges and triumphs but their dedication towards social justice, anti bias and first nations peoples is unwavering.
My vision when creating the podcast was to make the knowledge I speak of above as freely and as widely accessible to early childhood educators that I possibly could. I am a staunch advocate for First Nations world view, theories and philosophies and wanted to lift them to the forefront of the early childhood profession by empowering educators with knowledge and confidence to do the work that needs to be done.
