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.

    That is one of my favorite quotes from John F. Kennedy that I often repeat and have in a frame on my desk. As today is also the 55th year anniversary of his assassination, I will share another of his quotes that is fitting for the holiday. “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” My Gram always said that “Thanksgiving should be filled with two things, thanks and giving.” Thank-you Jennie and Charles for this inspiring post. Happy Thanksgiving!

      Thank you, Ellen. I’m glad you added Kennedy’s quote. That one is outstanding. And, words that inspire and remind us to live with gratitude can’t be stressed enough. Your Gram knew that well. 🙂

  6. I am so thankful for having you in my life, Jennie. You have been a constant friend and inspiration to me as a fellow (at least former) teacher. I want to wish you the very best life has to offer for today, tomorrow and always, Anne

  7. Thank you, Jennie and Charles, for reminding us that Thanksgiving is not just about Turkey, dressing, and all the fixings that we look forward at t his time of year! Sometimes we focus on all the things we don’t have or would like to change, but the most important thing is to remember the blessings of love, friendship, and the kindness of others, and be thankful and grateful. Karen 🙂
