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.

  3. we have a natural attraction to water. I suspect because 60% of our bodies is water?

    I have loved reading your blog this summer! I wanted you to know that today Oliver sat and read to me. A whole book. It made me over the moon and I knew there were two people I wanted to tell: you and Heidi. I wished I had your number to text you the video. It made me happier than anything in the world

    Thank you for continuing the love Of reading at GCS. It has meant everything to us. And it’s why we have a reader at age 4!!

    Love Sasha

      Hi Sasha! Thank you so much for telling me about Oliver!! Its children like Oliver and moments like reading that make me want to teach forever. I would love to see the video- 978-448-2345. I haven’t written about reading aloud this summer, but of course it is one of my key blog posts over the years. Many thanks!! 🥰

    Best wishes, Pete.
