About Jennie

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.

    Great quotes, I particularly like the one by Marcus Tullius and feel books enhances the athmosphere of a room. Every time I move I hear groans from removal guys who wonder whether I haven’t read them…….e.g. why keep them….they are dear friends many and I do give away a fair number.

    Charles found some great quotes, as always.
    I remember visiting friends years ago, and always looking at the books on their shelves.
    As well as ideas for a good read, they gave an insight into the character of the person too.
    Best wishes, Pete.
