About Me:

I am a preschool teacher with a passion for reading aloud, music, art, and discovering the world through the eyes of children.  I seize the moments in teaching when children are inspired and excited about learning, as those moments are often the best teaching moments.  That’s what I write about on my blog.  As a fellow reader and writer, I love connecting with people through their blogs.

My Spirit Animal

My spirit animal is a dragonfly.  They are peaceful, energetic, and interact with people and animals.  They have a quiet beauty, yet are vibrant and engaging.

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.
