Something I work at very hard is being compassionate with my self. It has been hard work. I am my harshest critic and rarely ever a cheerleader. These past few months I am finding a balance.

About ivonprefontaine

I have been an educator for almost 20 years. Prior to that, I worked in private industry for 15 years, then returned to university to earn my education degree. For the past 11 years, I have been a co-creator of learning in a unique, progressive, alternative educational school of choice. Currently, I am engaged in a doctoral program at Gonzaga University in Spokane. A main theme in my learning there has been the roles of systems thinking, complexity theory, and organizational theory, and how they apply to education generally and the learning environment I share with students, parents, and colleagues.

  2. Thank you for the reblog! :) :) You are such a wonderful soul! I hope you get your inner cheerleader in a marathon cheering mode, so the inner critic will just fade away for good. :) Many many blessings!
