About ivonprefontaine  


I have been an educator for almost 20 years. Prior to that, I worked in private industry for 15 years, then returned to university to earn my education degree. For the past 11 years, I have been a co-creator of learning in a unique, progressive, alternative educational school of choice. Currently, I am engaged in a doctoral program at Gonzaga University in Spokane. A main theme in my learning there has been the roles of systems thinking, complexity theory, and organizational theory, and how they apply to education generally and the learning environment I share with students, parents, and colleagues.

Thank You Ivon

The rules for the award are:

    1. If you are good about responding to every comment, then you will be the first one in the list.
    2. It is the next six commenter’s on the list that you will nominate and pass this award to.

Awarded by Tamara Faith @

Thank You Tamara

Award Rules:

1. Thank the person awarding you.
2. Share a little about why your blog and how the journey started –

I was inspired by my guidance ‘The Collective Consciousness’ to begin a blog. WordPress was the one that came to mind, and soon I began blogging. It really was that simple. What I didn’t know was I was going to find blogging such a joy. I didn’t anticipate blogging would become something that bridged the gulf between people. It has been a very pleasant surprise to find myself inter-connected with individuals whose lives are becoming as real as my friends in my social activities, here in Oz. Just goes to show; hearts unite, regardless of geography…!
3. Paste the blog award on your page.
4. Nominate 10 other bloggers you feel deserve the award.  (Or as many as you wish.)

Carolyn Page  –  ABC of Spirit Talk


  1. But this is altogether too kind; i.e., just what I’d expect from the delightful Carolyn Page!! Thank you, dear Carolyn!

    I’m too lazy to do what’s usually required for an award, but I’ll accept anyway, and I certainly don’t mind sharing 7 things about myself, providing I can think of something. OK, here goes:

    1. I worked on a golf course every summer while I was going to college. During that time, I raked about 23,160,457 sand traps. I still have sand between my toes… : (

    2. I love to watch hummingbirds at a feeder.

    3. I’m the oldest of 6 children. I have a brother and 4 sisters.

    4. I love rockabilly music, especially songs with an inspired guitar solo. Finding a cool solo that I’ve never heard before gives me a great deal of pleasure. No, I can’t explain it.

    5. I dislike modern stand-up comedy, but I’m usually the guy laughing the hardest when I go to see some old Noel Coward play on stage.

    6. I’m the world’s slowest eater.

    7. I worked as an extra in an old Robin Williams movie called Jumanji. I was one of many people being chased by a herd of computer-generated elephants that was inserted into the film later. All my scenes were cut. I’m convinced Robin Williams recognized my star potential, and saw me as a threat. Right. : )

    Thank you again, Carolyn, very sincerely appreciated.

    1. 1. I didn’t know there were that many sand traps in the whole wide world… hahahaha
      Oh, you mean one golf course’s sand traps cleaned 23,160,457.. That a lot, my dear friend. You’d know a lot about sand; that’s for sure…..! 😉
      2. I would love to watch hummingbirds at a feeder…. I’m going all green… yikes..!
      3. I’m the middle of 7.
      4. Don’t try… somethings just are….!
      5. I know I’d be there with you…! hahahahahahaha…
      6. Good for digestion and stamina….
      7. Mark Armstrong…. hmmm, certainly has a star like quality ring ’bout it….. 🙂
      You are so very welcome, Mark, anytime….. 🙂
      It’s a great pleasure to know you…. 🙂

    1. Thank You so much…!
      Awards are such lovely things to receive… I think they deserve a big post…. and it gives me the chance to be a bit artistic and rebellious, which I love… haha….. 🙂

    1. Haha, Tamara; it looks a little confusing…. 🙂
      I awarded you ‘The Family of Bloggers Award’ – where you use the anagram of the word ‘FAMILY’ to tell us the attributes you bring to the family of bloggers. Too cute, I think… 🙂
      Have fun…!

        1. You are very WELCOME…! 🙂
          Btw, I tried to leave a comment on your blog today (the one with your friend (both of you looked lovely, and the food delish))… it wouldn’t let me though.
          Is anyone else saying this, that they can’t leave a message? I tried yesterday too; once again it wouldn’t accept… 😦

            1. It’s worked out okay… don’t worry. I now copy and paste from a word doc., and that works just fine. I also have to do this for someone else I follow…

              It’s okay though; it works, and that’s the main thing….

              What’s that saying: Necessity is the mother of invention… haha… 🙂
