"This process (journey) has certainly been invaluable to my team but also to myself"
"You have been very inspiring this year and I want to say thank you. What I have learned is that while I do read and “research” my practices - I am going to be more diligent in documenting the process. By documenting this journey - it has certainly aided in keeping us on track and focused on WHY we made the change.
I was able to draw their attention back to the research we’ve done about why we adopted the “pedagogical play approach” and they had some wonderful “ah-ha” moments. Without this project and your passion about us being researchers AS WELL as teachers - I would have let these moments pass."

"Thank you and Farewell"
"Thank you for all that you have brought to my journey throughout my life as a teacher and as a PSFO.
No matter in what context it has been that I have worked with you, I have always found you to be supportive, encouraging, fun, a brilliant communicator, engaging and so very knowledgeable whilst challenging me to give my very best."

"I seriously cannot thank you enough for today. As usual you really made me think deeply about my practice but also you have also challenged staff to think deeply about their children and children’s context within their families and their community. Practically you have provided us all with some strong direction which all members of each team can embrace and learn from. I am sure this knowledge will be such a valuable tool in enhancing the quality of the programs that we deliver."
