Teaching Out of Bounds

Marie-Beth Wright

Team Teachers 2

From 1940 to 1969, hundreds of young people in Newfoundland taught in multi-graded classrooms or sole-charge schools in small, isolated communities. Although training, infrastructure, and equipment were sparse, these teachers established heart-to-heart connections in communities which led parents and students to trust their efforts, resulting in much success.

This presentation profiles these teachers and highlights their accomplishments and bravery as they accepted challenges and moved Newfoundland society and economy forward. They were a vital segment of our province’s educational base in the mid-20th century.
