This quote is worthy of consideration. When we stumble, can we get back on our feet. It reminds me of the Zen saying (I believe) that success is falling 7 times and getting up 8. Self-efficacy and having support around us is so much more than a fall sense of self-esteem which sinks into narcissism quickly.

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. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. 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, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.
