Another one of those, I know, I know. But here it is.
On May 16th, 1804, Elizabeth Palmer Peabody, was born. Who’s she? Well, I am glad you asked. She was an American educator and opened the first kindergarten in the United States. Kindergarten things: I am not quite sure if she is the one that came up with the idea to roll out beach towels, and take naps on them. Or if it was her idea to have the nap fairy walk around and wake everyone up. Bunny ears to tie shoe laces…singing songs for the heck of it….. or even having a designated cookie prince / princess to dole out the treats mid-afternoon.
I think all of these things should be integrated into corporate America.
Here’s to you Ms. Palmer Peabody.
