Always Be You

Authenticity in leadership and teaching are essential ingredients. It is easy to hide behind screens and distance ourselves from others. It is important to be true to one’s self in the process. Be authentic.

Practical Practice Management



I love this quote by “Ken Blanchard”

We each are unique in our own way.  At times we think that others should see, think and feel as we do because we are human, but this is not so.  We are individuals and each of us must be who we are meant to be.

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.

    A good strong quote, yes.

    I know this isn’t about being gay, but I always feel it’s brave for gay people to come out, to say “This is me”. I always admire them for that honesty of self, and outwardly.

  4. a wise caveat. And great new blog for me to follow. 🙂
