Taken from Chapter 12: The many jobs of the teacher The settlers hired a teacher as soon as they decided to build a school. Sometimes a teacher offered to teach in a village, and then the villagers decided to build the school. The first teachers were usually men. Some teachers wandered from place to place and taught at a new school each year. Others became members of a community. When a teacher was hired, he usually boarded with families in the area. He lived with one family for a few months and then on to the next house. The teacher's job included more than teaching. He might visit the sick and read to the blind. He might ring the church bell on Sundays and read the sermon at the church service. He was even the gravedigger in a few cases.Review:
This series truly provides a delightful glimpse into the nineteenth century. The illustrations match the stories and are a visual reminder of life in another era. This series of fifteen books is ideal for both Canadian and U. S. pioneer life studies -- Library Materials Guide, Spring 1985
