Teacher of the Old Avon Schoolhouse: Mrs. (Omie) Leona Meekins Tells about Her Teaching Experiences from 1907 to 1914

Record #:
The school system as she knew it back then: one room buildings, students of all ages taught together, and a salary of thirty five dollars a month. It may be surprising, then, for her to conclude those conditions better. A common explanation may be a salary almost a tenth of a contemporary salary stretching further. A less common conclusion may echo Leona Meekins’: God’s providence provided a fortunate and richly lived life.
