Jenni Greenham trained and worked in various educational roles in Victoria before resigning to pursue other interests. Many years later she travelled with her husband to Western Australia where she accepted a teaching position with underachieving students in a hard to staff rural school. Her role changed when she took up a position as an ESL Visiting Teacher in isolated desert communities in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands of WA. Over the final seven years Jenni worked as a principal and her enthusiasm and dedication led her to present at workshops on Aboriginal education several times at district seminars and at a National Education Summit. Jenni felt compelled to share her experiences after returning to mainstream Australia and recognising the prejudices of many people who insist on pigeon-holing Indigenous people as lazy and worthless. This memoir is written in the hope that some readers may question their own worldview of an often-maligned people; the Australian Aborigines.
