Thank you for the lovely letter, Rowan. Seeing your smiling face and getting a great big hug was the best. You were proud and confident, eager to show me your letter. I miss you, too.
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.

How special. Out of the mouths of babes!! This must have made your day, Jennie. 😊
It did, Darlene. It’s always an unexpected surprise when children pop in to visit. “Love letters” are the best!
Gorgeous. How special. That’s a keeper. (I’m sure you already have thousands of them, but each one is special.)
Thanks, Norah. Yes, each one is a treasure and a keeper,
For sure! 🙂
Things like that must make you sure that it is all ‘worth it’, Jennie. Delightful.
Best wishes, Pete.
Indeed they do! Thanks, Pete. Best to you.

What it’s all about…
What a wonderful letter. How does one ever throw such a tangible piece of love away?
One keeps them carefully tucked away. Thank you, Jacqui. 🙂
Doesn’t that just make your day! I bet your heart sings everyday.
It really does, Marlene. It’s always random and unexpected when they stop by. 🙂
How lovely to get a letter from a student that she wrote herself. 😀 Such a nice gift.

Priceless and heart warming. Certainly you must be creating a scrapbook of some sort…? Or should I say, scrapbooks.
That is so nice, Ren. I have all those letters tucked away. ❤️

This is one of the wonderful “perks” of teaching! Children coming back to thank you and parents sending their thanks are the Best!! 🙂 ❤

It is a very special gift to be a teacher so children coming back to thank us was always a “bonus.” 💐

Children are so full of love and it’s so nice to see it being spread!
