I have been teaching preschool for over thirty-five 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 was a live guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. I am highlighted in the seventh edition of Jim Trelease's million-copy bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital, and the Massachusetts State House in Boston.
Despite never having read any of her books, I reckon she knows what she’s talking about.
You cannot argue with that level of success, and would be a fool to try.
Best wishes, Pete.
Indeed. Best to you, Pete.
Great quotes. I agree that “Nothing will help you as much as reading.”
I knew you would love these, Norah! 🙂
Thank you so much for the reblogging!
You are most welcome, Charles!
I needed this post. I’ve been thinking about a story I’d like to write that will transport people to another place. This is great inspiration.
I’m so glad!! 😀
Quite right. Reading certain books inspires certain types of writing. It helps me write stories, too.
