A Retired Teacher

Billie worked as a school teacher for thirty-four years in the United States. She is now a retired teacher. Billie tells us about her personal life and the life of the people at the beginning of the twentieth century.

She was born on a farm near Millville, Minnesota, in 1916. They had no electricity on the farm. She went to school in Millville. The school looked like a big, square house. And there were four grades. The smaller people were downstairs – those who were six, seven, eight and nine years old. These were all ages in the same room. One teacher taught all the subjects to these four grades.

When Billie was small a woman became a nurse, a secretary or a teacher or got married. The teacher was her choice. Women didn’t have many choices when she was small.
