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.

    Thank you for the reblogging!

  3. Jennie, These three quotes are three of my very favorite quotes of all time, especially this one: “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are!” [In Life]. I bet you love these three quotes too!! K D 🙂

    • Jennie says:

      I do!! Quotes are more than inspiring. They show us the way and ground us in values. A good quote is a seed taking root, isn’t it? 🙂

      • Jennie, I love what you wrote: ‘A good quote is a seed taking root’! How perfect is that!! Wonderful! I hope you have a lovely weekend! Karen Anna

      • Jennie says:

        Thank you, Karen…or is it Karen Anna?

      • Hi Jeannie, yes my Christian name is Karen Anna, some people just say Karen Ann, but it is Karen Anna (Anna is my grandmother’s name and she always called me Karen Anna) My family and my husband’s family call me Karen Ann. But, since my grandmother’s passing, I am going to use Karen Anna. I use K. D. for my books. Thank you for noticing. My twin sister’s name is Kathy Lauren and I spent years being called by her name too. We are identical twins, mirror twins, even our finger prints. Karen Anna or Karen Ann or Karen or K D! 🙂

      • Jennie says:

        And to think I have been calling you Karen forever! Thank you, Karen Anna. Beautiful name, by the way. Also, I am Jennie, not Jeannie. 😊

      • Absolutely! Meaningful, life changing, affirming quotes still with us as a value, a belief and then we see the world a little differently or a lot differently. Karen Anna

      • Jennie says:

        Exactly! 🙂

  4. Good place to meet friends. Love those quote enough to read them over and over.
