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.

    America is self centred, a cares little except themselves.

    How do you embrace the world like this.

    Hospitals who act like they care deeply at treatment will garnish a families wages six months later and render them homeless.

    I find little compassion and much suffering in my little Oregon town.

    It is disappointing to watch people behave so selfishly.

  3. Happy New Year!  I’ll be counting on you.
