The Sticky Bun Lady

Christmas Eve

every year for the past thirty years

the sticky bun lady delivers

her special Christmas treat.

Her children were my preschoolers

thirty-something years ago.

She made her famous sticky buns with the class

and the rest is history… and breakfast.

Merry Christmas!

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.

    Merry Christmas, Jennie. I’ve been a bit under the weather, and I’ve been trying to enjoy my family and friends while feeling like crap. God bless you for all of the children’s lives you have touched and will continue to touch for years to come (even after you eventually retire.)
