I am a little slow this morning. I enjoyed my time at Teacher’s Convention and three of the presentations were outstanding, I found a new favourite restaurant and walked a lot. The fourth presentation was pretty good. What uplifts my spirit seemed a great way to start the day.

“Look around you. What uplifts your spirit? Wherein do you recognize a more beautiful nature within you, even if no one else on this earth understands? What helps you recognize your own greater nature?

Nothing uplifts your heart and soul that did not begin with yearning. Nothing exists to delight your senses without someone honoring theirs, without them trusting the power of their creative imagination. Same holds true for your joy in the yesterdays.” – Dr. Cara Barker

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.
