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.

it is incomplete.”

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school . My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  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!
