Beside the temple pond

I love haiku. There is a presence in the words because they are so carefully chosen and mix so well with the silence in spaces between.

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.

  3. We love anything Temple. We especially love this. The silence leaves us with our own thoughts. Just shows a few words has more impact than a page of meaningless nothings. Great find.
