Soul Gatherings

I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything,

I still believe that people are really good at heart.

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.

  1. A heartwrenching quote from Anne Frank.

  2. Darlene says:

    This is my favourite quote from Anne Frank and I also follow that rule of thought, no matter what.

    • Jennie says:

      I feel exactly the same way. I thought of Amanda in Holland and how you gave tribute to Anne.

      • Darlene says:

        Anne Frank has been my hero for a long time and had to be included in the book. In fact, that same Grade Three teacher, Miss Roll, who I have mentioned a few times, was who introduced me to Anne Frank and her story. Another example of a teacher making a difference.

      • Jennie says:

        I just love this!! Anne has been my hero since childhood, too. Yes, you have often mentioned wonderful Miss Roll. I hope she has a signed copy of Amanda in Holland. 🙂

  8. beetleypete says:

    She would undoubtedly have lived to become an inspiration to so many. Such a tragedy.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    I’m an optimist and believe that to be true. What’s remarkable is for Anne Frank to have that attitude, considering all she went through.

    • Jennie says:

      I am the optimist, too. You are so right, Pete. A positive attitude is one thing, yet she had it in spite of adversities the rest of us could never imagine.
