About this Item

A Miss Ware is the school teacher. She is teaching school in Randolph, Massachusets. Diary is 6-1/2 x 8 inches. 108p., fully mnauscript. Good day to day account of life of a young teach away from her home, her endless need for order in the classroon ("I gave him a good whipping with my ruler" "barefaced impudence" ) Diary shows difficulty in establishing control of classroom, of establishing herself as an acceptable teacher (One day the school master, Mr. B. Dickerman, calls her into his office for a critical evaluation: "How he would impress me with the idea that I am not a fit teacher for his schools here in this town! I am sorry to day the dear man has failed to do so. I detest Dickerman and always did. He is so cringing, always scraping to everybody's will. ") Includes lengthy account of her 3 week vacation at home. Fairly good, cover warped and worn ; on a few pages the ink has faded almost away but is still legible with effort but the vast majority of pages are very easy to read. Binding secure.
