Astonishing Light

Some days we feel like we are upside down and things are not going well. Being optimistic is a way of getting through that moment. We have our light to shine.

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.

    • Sometimes what I think is hard times turns into the best thing. It is only in the retrospect that I see the value of the bump on the road. Good luck with your project and thank you for the comment.
