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.

    “A room without books is like a body without a soul.” Yesssss! The other day we were in the car and Charlotte was reading a book and she dropped it and my husband and I could not bend quite that far to retrieve it for her lol and she exclaimed…. “it’s so borning (she hasn’t quite grasped the word ‘boring’ yet lol), not reading a book is soooo borning!” and I said, “honey, I totally agree!!” LOL

    The power of the human word knows no bounds. I think Charles’s quote is perhaps my favorite.

  8. Agree, agree, agree. What a joy it is to find yourself immerse in a captivating story. I’m currently hooked on ‘Alone in Berlin’ by Hans Fallada.
