Take the First Step

Each step begins a new journey.

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. This has to be one of my favourite quotes, Ivon.
    (similar to that expression, You’ll never know unless you Try). Living life to the fullest takes a certain amount of courage. Courage to step outside of your comfort zone and courage to test unknown waters.

  2. Running mindfulness blog supporting those who suffer from trauma, the number one reason humans do not heal is action.

    We will read, discuss, do,almost anything but take a small concrete action.

    Fear, laziness or confusion seem to be the reasons.

    If I were to group humans or pick a friend, the first two questions would be:

    Giver or taker

    Sedentary or active.
