Blogger of the Week

I am honored to be the featured ‘Blogger of the Week’ over at Mitch Teemley’s blog.  He is terrific!  He tells the best stories, and has  humor and a heart that will make you want to know this blogger.

When I Became a ‘Real’ Teacher

My Featured Blogger this week is Jennie Fitzkee of A Teacher’s Reflections. Jennie is one of the most inspiring bloggers you’ll ever read, and an acclaimed Capturepreschool teacher whose methods are mentioned in the bestselling ‘The Read-Aloud Handbook’. But Jennie has more than mere talent or technique, she has a heartful of love for teaching–and for her children. Read on and you’ll see!

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.
