And, Maya Angelous’ poetry and writing made me feel like I could make a difference in the world.

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. RIP Maya Angelou. One of the finest poets of our generation.

  2. Thank you, Ivon. I have just begun to learn of her profundities, and my thoughts echo yours, in the sense of exceeding the drop to overflow a bucket. She was oceans big, and like an ocean, she will continue.

  3. THANK YOU for remembering and honoring her!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
