In keeping with bell hooks and Noam Chomsky, I consider myself a public and dissident intellectual. Part of my work is to move beyond (transcend) institutional dogmas that bind me to defend freedom, raising my voice to be heard on behalf of those who seek equity and justice in all their forms.
I completed my PhD in Philosophy of Leadership Studies at Gonzaga University, Spokane, WA. My dissertation and research was how teachers experience becoming teachers and their role as leaders.
I focus on leading, communicating, and innovating in organizations. This includes mindfuful servant-leadership, World Cafe events, Appreciative Inquiry, and expressing one's self through creativity. I offer retreats, workshops, and presentations that can be tailored to your organzations specific needs.
I published peer reviewed articles about schools as learning organizations, currere as an ethical pursuit, and hope as an essential element of adult eductaion. I published three poems and am currently preparing my poetry to publish as an anthology of poetry.
I present on mindful leadership, servant leadership, schools as learning organizations, how teachers experience becoming teachers, assessement, and critical thinking. I facilitate mindfulness, hospitality retreats. and World Cafe Events using Appreciative Inquiry.
I am writing and researching about various forms of leadership, how teachers inform and form their identity as a particular teacher, schools as learning organizations, hope and its anticipatory relationship with the future, and hope as an essential element in learning.
cute one Ivon.

Thank you for the poetry and the pause.
thanks for sharing the seuss wisdom )
He had so much.
He did –
Mud pies anyone?
Or walking through the mud with it squishing through our toes?
Now that sounds like fun!
If only adults could still see the world through the eyes of their inner child, what a wonderful world it would be.
It would be a much different world to think like Tom Hanks’ character in Big.
His children’s books were genius in his ability to take adult shortcomings as a basis for teaching. I would venture even adults learned a lot from his wisdom.
It was about providing children with a view of what fairness, kindness, and justice might look like.
It’s true. He really had a way with words. 🙂
He certainly did.
