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.

    I left a comment over there, Jennie. You are getting around the blogs these days. Well done! It is richly deserved.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. That was great, nice job!

  4. I agree! Reading to children is one of the best gifts you can give them–and it’s also a great gift to yourself. 🙂
