Abstract

In this paper, we give the Growing Our Own students the opportunity to tell us their perceptions of the Growing Our Own program. As Growing Our Own partners and lecturers, it has been easy to provide our view of what we see happening when we work in the Growing Our Own program. We are aware that what this program offers to us, both personally and professionally, is highly valuable. We commonly express the privilege we feel to be working in the program and our talk often turns to the care that is given to and received from the people involved: our students, our mentor teachers, our schools, our relationship with Catholic Education, our teaching, our learning (and learning and learning), our joys, our failures, the extreme hilarity and the sadness we feel at some of the stories we hear of the struggles our students encounter.
