Whose Life Is This

This is an interesting way of seeing the world and reminds me of a Jon Kabat-Zinn quote: “Find a Job with a capital J. Stop doing someone else’s work.” We need to find our passion in life and, when we do, blend it with compassion.

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.
