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.
Lovely and warm quotes on such the best way to make a difference: kindness! 😊 Hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Jennie.
Thank you, Robin. Kindness is #1. Hope your Thanksgiving was good, albeit different. Mine was wonderful, spending time with the grandies! 🙂
I enjoyed the grandkids and my Mom enjoying watching family. Thank you! 🙂
I’m so glad!
Thank you, Jennie! 🙂
You’re welcome, Robin. 🙂
Lovely quotes, Jennie.
They are indeed. Thanks, Robbie!
Lovely quotes, Jennie. I agree with them all. I especially like Desmond Tutu’s. It reminds us to not be overwhelmed by looking at the world as a whole, but to take notice of the changes we can make in our own space, in our own circle.
Absolutely! I was struck by all three. Kindness is #1. Best to you, Norah!
What could be simpler or more pertinent in these times.
