Preschool Power during Flexible Instruction


Preschool Power during Flexible Instruction

Roxbury, NJ (May 21, 2020) — It is not what happens to you but how you react that matters. 

Sometimes we look to small children when big changes happen and expect them to behave like we anticipate young children will. 

This does not hold true for the preschool students in Patti Klein’s preschool class and their champion parents, siblings, and grandparents. Perhaps it is these young ones that have so very much to teach all of us if we take time to do what we all should do when a child speaks to us; STOP, DROP, and LISTEN. 

“Here is what I now after more than 40 days as a virtual preschool teacher. My students are much more adaptable than I am. My students’ caregivers have so much to teach me and it does not matter if it is virtual or not. A child’s smile of accomplishment is the most joyous of all things. 

Enjoy these beautiful little one’s pictures showing all of us, they do hard things with grace and happiness.
