A Song For the Ages – The Voices of Children

This is the song of the school year,
the song that makes me swell with joy, cry,
and feel so very proud to be teaching children.
Children are our future.

“Where words fail, music speaks”
~Hans Christian Andersen~


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.

      It doesn’t happen every year, but when a great song comes along, it sticks! This is one of the best. Grab a tissue and be ready to smile at this song. Best to you, Michael.
