The many benefits of working in a rural school; a teacher’s journey
Teaching in a regional or remote setting brings many benefits and rewards. There are of course the intrinsic rewards associated with making a real difference to student learning, and there are also the lifelong friendships that are forged from living and working in a small and friendly community. For many, including Paul Natale, another benefit that can be added to this list is being provided with the opportunity to work in senior leadership roles from a very early career stage. Paul moved to Newman, a mining town in a remote part of Western Australia’s Pilbara region six years ago. Paul took a different path to that of his colleagues to get to where he is today, but hasn’t looked back since moving from Perth to Newman, and is in no rush to leave anytime soon.
