Soul Gatherings

We do not stop playing because we grow old.
We grow old because we stop playing.

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.

    Fantastic quote! So much wisdom in those words! One of my favorite parts of the typical school day was taking part in P.E. “with” my students. They never were quite sure what to make of their teacher running around playing games with them, other than it made them laugh to see a teacher acting like a kid.

  6. It has so much truth in it!

  7. What a great quote! I would not have expected it from Ben Franklin.

  8. Cant regret. 😉 Wonderful said. Thank you for this motivating piece, Jennie!
