Have you ever wondered what life is like on a modern day First Nations Indian Reserve? Inspired by an extraordinary, true story this book showcases life on a remote First Nations Reserve in Northern Canada. When Hillary is offered a teaching position on a remote, First Nation Reserve called Pleasant Valley, she is unprepared for the amazing adventures ahead. Teaching on the Reserve was only one aspect of the remarkable experience. Although she loved teaching many grade five students in a busy rotation schedule, some features of her new job were terrifying and did not bring out the best in people. Drawing upon her personal journal entries, Hillary recounts stressful situations caused by small aircraft not landing due to low ceiling heights, pilots announcing good news and bad news. Read from the comfort of your favorite chair, what it was like for her to discover an unannounced Native man in her living room feigning an eye injury so that he could use her bathroom and steal all her hairspray! "Teacher!" parachutes you onto a remote, First Nation Reserve that is more akin to a ghetto experience, complete with boil only water warnings, rather than the dream job hoped to obtain after graduating from Teacher's College.show more
