    Abstract

    Remote Indigenous education is challenged by many factors one of which is the attraction and retention of quality teachers to work in hard-to-staff schools. In this paper, I explore how successful remote schools have worked with the significant challenge – ensuring quality and rich mathematics learning for Indigenous students Building the skills of beginning teachers to work in these schools is the focus of this paper. Building a culture across the school in which early career teachers negotiate their new context and develop a sense of identity as beginning teachers has been achieved at many schools through the deployment of a numeracy leader
