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.

    Excellent! Poetry is whatever you want to call it! Sometimes it’s words, sometimes dance and sometimes shape and colour. The whole universe is a poem.

      Thank you, Sue. Charles has outstanding quotes. In New England we have a week off in February beginning Presidents Day, and a week off in April beginning Patriots Day. So, another week of school, then we’re off the following week. Looking forward to catching up and spring cleaning. Have fun at the sleepovers!! 😀
