thank you

Rumi has a way of saying things with such simplicity which resonate across time. It can be uplifting to hear someone thank us for the smallest of gestures and the kindness we speak.

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. Beautiful Rumi Thankyou 🙂

  2. Gratitude and giving are the most permanent things I own.
    LoThe most valuable in my life.

    It is the foundation of my happiness, it endures and exists even when hardship arrives at my doorstep.

    Very nice Ivon.

  3. I see your teaching, your openess to think the students may be teaching you as a huge gift and your career a journey of gratitude, Ivon.

    You are actually influencing young minds.

    I hope you know the permanence your actions have.

    You are a great role model.

    Carry that with you with a smile

  4. Have faced some fearful challenges of late and things turned out remarkably well and I truly am thankful.

  5. A picture of a polar bear with the words “Be Thankful” hangs on my computer desk as a constant reminder of how blessed I am.
