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.

    I always liked Bettelheim’s insistence that the tragedy and drama in fairy tales was essential for kids, not the cleaned up tales that Disney seemed to promote for years. Anderson’s tales used to have that challenging effect on me as a kid.

  11. I like that Jennie! Life is just that!

  12. It is… And May we all continue to create Magical moments within it.. ❤
    Sending love and Blessings dearest Jennie.. ❤
