Japanese Garden in Portland

Kathy and I visited Portland several times and this is one of our favourite spots along with the Rose Gardens which are only a short distance away. On a cold, blustery day, this is a warming spot for the first day of the New Year.


About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

    • You will not be disappointed and the Rose Gardens are within walking distance if memory serves me correctly. You can spend a good portion of the day up there.
