A contented mind

When I was growing up, an ice cream cone was a treat. It was a little thing, but it was special. It is often the little things we recall from our past or perhaps they call us.

Great wealth consists in living on a little with a contented mind;

for of a little there is never a lack.

About ivonprefontaine

I am a retired educator who recently completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. My dissertation topic and research was how teachers experience becoming who they are as teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.
