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.

    Great quotes, as usual, Jennie. Thank you. 🙂

  10. Great choice for a share, Jennie. That Margaret Mead quote is spot on. It’s one of the biggest problems we face (when you dig to the roots) — for generations we’ve been taught not to think, rather than how to think. So few people have any critical thinking skills at all…
    Hugs on the wing!

  11. Excellent quotes! 🙂 Sharing…
