“Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and, therefore, the foundation of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power that enables us to empathize with humans whose experiences we have never shared.”

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 first saying, I used to have, on a postcard in my room as a teenager. I think reading that daily has made me extremely empathetic!

    wonderful words, all

  5. Thank you, Jennie! So true, we need more empathy, in these days too. Thinking myself on all the refugees in Greece, and the rich Europe is not willing to help.Covid-19 will be to them harmful, too. Best wishes, Michael

    Roosevelt really resonated with me. So many experts right now and so little empathy it seems.

  7. L. Marie says:

    All are great quotes (especially the one about walking a mile in someone else’s moccasins).

  11. Somehow I forgot that it was T.R. who said the quote that’s on every teacher’s lips come start of the new school year.
