I have only come across Nina Simone’s music in the last couple of years, but she is an amazing singer. Take a listen.

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.

  1. Love Nina Simone! She was very popular when I was growing up.


    • I lived in the wrong place, because I had not heard of her until recently. Although she is not always referred to as blues performer, I missed out on her despite seeing many of the legends live in the early’ 1970’s.

  2. Have always loved Nina. I used to sing some of her songs during my singing career. And I loved what she stood for.

  3. I admire Nina as a musician, and saw her when she performed here in Israel. But are you aware of the extreme racist material in the blog that you took this post from?
