Two Blog Awards

the-versatile-blogger-awardThank you to my good friend and happy blogger Nina over at The Happy Life – – for nominating me for the Versatile Blog Award.  I am honored!  The rules are to list seven random facts about yourself, and of course to thank the blogger who nominated you.  Thank you, Nina.  Although I am supposed to tag other bloggers, that is like picking just one cat, as in the classic book Millions of Cats by Wanda Gag; an impossible task with so many lovely bloggers who write beautifullyPlease visit Nina’s fabulous blog site!

Here are seven random facts about me:

  • I hate most cooked vegetables.
  • I am patriotic.
  • I prefer summer to winter, and country to city.
  • My love for children drives my life.
  • I love puzzles and I Spy books.
  • I love old movies.
  • I play the auto harp at school, and if I see a piano in public I search for someone who can play the top part to “Heart and Soul” while I play the bottom part.

Three Quote Challenge

Thank you to JD Fisher over at and to Rashmi for nominating me for the Three Quote Challenge Blog Award.  Here are three of my favorite quotes:

“Creativity is intelligence having fun”  Albert Einstein

“One child, one teacher, one book, 0ne person can change the world”  Malala Yousafzai

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.  They must be felt with the heart”  Helen Keller


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.

    My goodness! How did I miss this post!?!
    Like you I prefer my vegetables raw too. 😊 And I am definitely summer-country type too! 😊
    I love all the quotes Jennie! They’re fabulous! But my favorite is the second one. I honestly believe it. One book that I’ve read moved me to do something about my dream. One child made me realize how much love I am able to give and give-up without expecting any in return. One teacher once told me something that definitely boosted my self-confidence. And here I am doing my little part in making a difference (i hope!) By inspiring someone through what I write. 😊

      That is so beautiful, Nina! Thank you for telling me your story. Yes, you most definitely make a difference with all you write, and all the happiness you spread to others. I’m glad you liked the quotes! I find that reading a positive quote every day has a cumulative effect over time. It’s a wonderful thing! Have a great weekend.
