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.

For the last 17 years I taught, I was a teacher in a unique, progressive, alternative educational school of choice. Currently, I am engaged in a doctoral program at Gonzaga University in Spokane. My dissertation topic is how teachers experience becoming who they are as teachers, as human subjects.

    • 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.
