Don’t Forget to Play

Don’t Forget to Play

We can always be children at heart and play when we read wonderful stories like Winnie the Pooh.

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. Happy new year and best wishes to you and yours for health, happiness, peace & prosperity in 2015!

  2. I think athletic endeavors, athletes, jocks embody this more as we age.

    Something in challenging yourself and renewal, something in pushing past pain and limitations that keeps us young.

    Competitive athletes work out for six months in an off season without regard for daily reward.

    This discipline is something absent in the general population.

    As I age, challenging my body past exhaustion seems to keep the mind spry and youthful, exhilarated.

    As a hockey coach and an athlete, I Wonder if you agree with this.

  3. Love the Pooh! Tomas does an excellent imitation of Eyore. Blessings from Madrid, Spain

  4. The charming characters of Winnie the Pooh endure…Sir (my father) reminds me very much of Eeyore. Me mum and I often called him as such. I think there is a character for everyone in Winnie the Pooh. Wonderful post and sentiment! Joyous cheers,
