FORTY FACES by Mary Urmston


Email this review


Teaching as a vocation forms the basic thesis of this story of Jean Madison, who had been bitterly disappointed when her family could not send her to the University and she took a teacher's training course at home instead. By no means all vocationa as Jean goes on a grand Thanks giving weekend in the country, later has a whirl in New York, has her ups and downs with Dave, her home town beau, and so on. She learns to enjoy her new field, her experiences with children, parents and community angles, her substitute job in a district schoolhouse, with difficulties and mistakes counterbalancing the eventual success.
