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.

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.

      Thank you, Deborah. I welled up, too, as I hadn’t read that story in ages. And to think that he carried this love and loss with him until he married.
