This is a beautiful way to begin the day. It reminded me of the Parker Palmer quote: “Ask who the person is that teaches.” Who am I? What do I stand for? What do I hold as my truth? These are the guideposts of life from moment to moment. Be present.
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.
