Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives – #Family – Childhood, and Train Whistles, and My Grandmother by Jennie Fitzkee

Family history and stories, and childhood experiences, shape our lives. Thank you, Sally Cronin, for sharing the story of my childhood.

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.

    I loved these recollections and appreciated the link to the website where you were featured. I have many train memories as we went back and forth from Oregon to New York on the train when we went to see my grandparents. Their town was so little it was literally a flag stop and the station master waved down the train for me to board to go to see a friend in Washington, D.C.

    I always love to hear that story. And it is wonderful to see you featured on Sally’s blog. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I loved reading this fascinating bit of your history. Wow! I also love going to sleep to the sound of trains going by. We lived in Colorado Springs for about 6 months once and a train ran behind our house. The train was like a lullaby.
