I loved the questions you asked today. You’re thought provoking and you challenge our thinking. You do so in a really encouraging way. I’ve learnt a lot from you in the time that we’ve worked together.
Thanks for your visit, a while ago now.  It really inspired me to figure out how we can improve our practice, particularly te reo.
In general, a thank you for providing us with this remarkable opportunity to connect, be inspired, inquire, and consider our own paradigm/situation and how to improve outcomes for our Māori students and, in fact, all students!
