Do You See What I See?

And what to my wondering eyes should appear,

Books, a tree with lights, a photo with grandchildren, a candle, and my favorite quote by Maya Angelou, my mantra, my rally:

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people,will never forget how you made them feel.”


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.

    What a lovely cozy area! I love that Maya Angelou quote, she was so inspiring. One of my favorite quotes from her : “If you must look back, do so forgivingly. If you must look forward, do so prayerfully. However, the wisest thing you can do is be present in the present…gratefully.” A very Merry Christmas to you! Thank-you!
