This interview is with the Principal of Eugene Joseph Elementary, Margaret Mattess. Eugene Joseph Elementary is located in Tl’azt’en.
”Education is a continuous process that enables each Tl’azt’enne to reach her/his fullest potential. The roots of education are planted in families, cultural values and traditions.
Individual growth is dependent on a team of educators committed to the principles of motivation, encouragement, support and success.
At Eugene Joseph Elementary we are proud of our students, our parents and our community. We believe that all students, given the right support, can learn at a high level. We expect that all students will graduate and go on to some form of post-secondary education.” from the website http://tlaztennation.ca/eugene-joseph-elementary/
