Barbed Wire

Barbed Wire

Nature’s boundaries are subtle, often changing cyclically and rhythmically. Humans tend to enclose and separate. My mother-in-law used to complain about the deer in the garden. We would tell her put up a fence and she would say that was worse. We co-inhabit spaces with sentient and non-sentient phenomena. We really cannot fence ourselves outside of the infinite relationships present to us in the universe.


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.
