|Commentaires :||EMILY MELISSA MYERS From Norton in Kings County, NB, Myers was born in 1895. She attended Normal School in 1914. Myers, holding a second-class license, was contracted to teach in Johnston parish in Queens County. Her term ran from September to December of 1928 for which she was paid $450.00 for the school year. In 1930 she was contracted, at a rate of $650.00/year to teach in Pennfield. A 1934 letter of recommendation from the Blacks Harbour School Board notes that she was a young lady of pleasing personality and high scholastic attainments. She was involved in community welfare work and touted as one of the best teachers [the town] had ever had in [its] school. A 1935 letter from the Inspector of Schools notes that Myers had taught the Primary department for the past four years. She had taught grades I, II and III to the complete satisfaction, of ratepayers, trustees and her 58 students. She exhibited splendid teaching and disciplinary ability. The Inspector also noted her good personality and good character. In 1941, Myers applied for a non-immigrant visa so that she could spend seven months with her sister in Calais, Maine. In 1943, Myers was contracted to teach in Burton, Sunbury County at a rate of $500.00/year. This is all the information that the collection yields.
