Japanese Garden in Portland

Kathy and I visited Portland several times and this is one of our favourite spots along with the Rose Gardens which are only a short distance away. On a cold, blustery day, this is a warming spot for the first day of the New Year.

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.
