It’s a Matter of Perspective

When I talk to students, this is something I try remind them of when they are struggling with how long things take. It is so much better to look ahead and be in the present moment.


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.

  1. I so agree with you Ivon, I try to teach them to see the vision and strive their hardest to achieve it no matter how long it may take. Beautiful message my brother! I am so happy to read your posts again!

  2. Ivon, I may have shared this but two of my children are educators; your post(s) are outstanding, all enjoyable to read. Ann

    • Thank you Ann. Roland Barth, himself an educator, wrote that we should allow people to repeat their stories because it is what they hold close to their heart. Even if you had told me, it is nice to hear it again.
