It Begins Within

This has been an incredibly difficult and challenging lesson to learn for me over the years. I needed to accept, forgive, and love myself. Loving myself responsibly makes me a better gift for others. I had the opportunity to hear Marianne Williamson present and it was truly inspirational.


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.
