Rebecca Lee Crumpler is a woman that history knows little of other than her degree and the little she wrote about herself in the beginning of a book. What makes this woman so important to history, and so important to me, is that Rebecca Lee Crumpler was the first African-American woman to earn an M.D. degree in the United States, and one of the first African Americans to write a book of medical advice. Crumpler, born in Delaware in 1831, was raised by her aunt in Pennsylvania. Crumpler’s aunt was a woman who spent much of her time caring for sick neighbors and friends. In the beginning of her book, A Book of Medical Discourses, she explained that being surrounded by the work of her aunt is what made her form a liking to relieving the suffering of others, which is what pushed her to go into medicine.
To change this, she founded the American Birth Control League in 1921, and just two years later her Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau opened. It was at this clinic that an all-female staff worked, as well as all-female
Quindlen establishes her credibility by showing that she is either a mother or a teacher. Although not clear of which she is implying, she states “…in the textbooks on my children’s desks” (89). This can insinuate she has children of her own or teaches children, which validates her opinion regarding overscheduled children in America. Quindlen also shares that she is a writer which can be contributed to the free time she had as a child. “How boring it was…
When Nicole was born, her ascribed statuses were already set into stone. Nothing and no one could change the outcome of her ascribed statuses. Ascribed statuses are compelling and unique because nobody can control these statuses. For example, Nicole’s mother could not have chosen whether she wanted to have a boy or girl. However, there are statuses that Nicole can choose to go by like choosing to get married and becoming a spouse (wife) is an achieved status.
The first Juvenile Court of Chicago was established and the first probation officer were Hull House staff members. Children were then sent to clean detention centers or in the care of probation officers.2 In 1907 Hull House added a gymnasium, theater, art gallery, music school, boys' club, auditorium, cafeteria, cooperative residence for working women, kindergarten, nursery, libraries, post office, meeting and club rooms, art studios, kitchen, and a dining room and apartments for the residential staff.3 I think the services offered at the Hull House were necessary to the children at that time.
Despite being an outcast in a classroom setting, Estrella was still determined to learn new things and showed no indication that she was uncomfortable in such a setting that might hinder her learning performance. When it “never occurred to her that she was dirty” because of claim of her mother’s seemingly sanitary care of her, she reveals that the new culture she is in contrasts where she came from. This
There is one issue that weighs heavily on the mind of every parent and that is the issue of their child’s education. Education plays a major component of how a society runs, proceeds into the future, and a pioneer of today’s educational system of young children was Dr. Maria Montessori. Maria Montessori shattered glass ceilings and became a world- renowned pioneer for women, children, and the educational system throughout the world. Dr. Maria Montessori was a child of Italy, as this is where her humble beginnings began. Prior to her birth in 1870, which happens to be the same year that Italy became a single united nation, the nation faced tremendous challenges.
Scout admits she feels fine and Atticus asks her what is wrong. She tells him that her teacher, Miss Caroline, says that they cannot read together anymore because she is too advanced for her age. Atticus responds with, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view … until you climb into his skin and walk around in it,”(Lee 39). Though Scout does not fully understand the concept of this lesson, it slowly comes to her as the book advances. She is able to make many connections using what Atticus taught her, and she truly understands the meaning of standing in another person’s shoes.
She is not only intelligent in school but recognizes and can take care of real life situations in a knowledgeable manner. Her second grade teacher even recognized this. At one point of the book, she was told to stop learning. “Miss Caroline told me to tell my father not to teach me anymore, it would interfere with my reading.” Her teacher didn’t want her to learn anymore, when teachers are supposed to encourage as much learning as possible.
In addition to this, although given the governess position that Jane takes in Thornfield Hall, Brandon still interprets it as ‘nothing but a minor appendage in someone else’s household’ (qtd. in Owsley 59 and 62). This significant change— from lowly schoolgirl, to a charity school teacher, to a governess— in Jane’s place in the social class is one of Brontë’s first moves to get Jane over the social class barriers. And with that, Brontë did not fail in making sure that Jane appears as an independent thinker, utilizing her judgment in deciding for these major turning points in her

Stem is an exceptional school, but it also has a large amount of poor qualities. I like that the school is known for kinesthetic learning. I am a kinesthetic learner so that aspect would create exceptional academics. Also, I know that Rae is getting in because her sister was accepted, which means I would know her and some kids from church. In contrast some parts of the school that are not as desirable are that there are no art classes.
The burns clearly detracted from her appearance but when the Doctor. talked to her about it she said she had accepted her face and commented, “It’s the only one I’ve got” (D’Ambrosio, 1970, p. 262). She went on to explain that she wanted to work with children and that did no require attractiveness. Laura stated she would rather have more brains so she could succeed at nursing school instead of worrying about her looks. This was a change in her attitude and confidence (D’Ambrosio, 1970, p.262).
St. Lucy’s girls and Indian children had to become more civilized as a result the kids were forced to attend boarding schools. Boarding schools were trying to teach the kids to become more civilized through education. They thought that education would be the easiest way to help the children be civilized. Boarding schools intended to civilize the students’ parents as well. They would do this by allowing the children to share what they are learning at school with their parents at home.
