My experience is a little different and pales in comparison, but the message is simple. What can I change and not change? This is fundamental. This morning I was vibrating after I read a post by a person who has never taught and is blogging about what we should or should not do in classrooms and schools. Superficially, it all sounds good and, if I did not know him, I would say what a wonderful educator. As I read the Serenity Prayer, I realized I can only change what I can change and it starts with me.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.
