Bloggers as Friends

I spend more time reading my fellow bloggers posts than I do writing posts. That’s because my fellow bloggers are good friends, and what they write is important. They are household names. Hubby will often ask, “How’s Pete?” I talk about you as if you are right here, right now. Because you are. I think that speaks volumes. Pete’s post says it best of all. Read on:

When I started writing less than two years ago, I had no clue what I was doing in the blogging world. I had written a memoir/advice book about my teaching career, They Call Me Mom, https://www.amazon.com/They-Call-Mom-Difference-Elementary/dp/1977200052 (something I hadn’t planned to do), and the logical follow-up question was now what?

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.

    Thanks for the reblog, Jennie. You know that visiting the Aqua Room is now on my Bucket List. You are a gem and the kind of teacher that any young teacher should have for a mentor.

      My pleasure, Pete. When this whole COVID thing is over, maybe we blogging friends can connect. If I get to CA, you’re on my bucket list. The Aqua Roomers would love to meet you. Me, too. 😀

    Thanks for the reblog, Jennie. You know that visiting the Aqua Room is now on my Bucket List. You are a gem and the kind of teacher that any young teacher should have for a mentor. I am quite touched that your husband asks about me.😊 My wife (former preschool teacher, director, and college sweetheart) and I will have to take the two of you out to dinner when we make it back east.

  6. The blogging community is really a fine group of people. They make me glad I started blogging (quite a while ago now).
