Excerpt from Review of Negro Life in North Carolina, With My Recollections, Vol. 1

I would not convey the impression that these children were very much different from other children. They were not. They were average boys and girls full of vigor, bulging with energy, brimming with life and artful in mischievous enterprise. I would not have it believed that there were not times when correctivemeasures had to be applied. There were such occasions. My methods of discipline were always firm, but I endeavored to administer them in a spirit of kindness. Children have a keen sense of the propriety of their conduct. They often test their teachers to see just how strong they are and just how weak. They will not forgive weakness. I remember on one occasion of having transferred a number of pupils to another school. Some of them went and stayed a while and left. All of them com plained that the teachers were not strict enough. I never hesi tated to punish when punishment was necessary. No teacher should delude himself into the belief that he can cultivate the love of his pupils by allowing them to do as they please. Only be sure that you are right; exercise good judgment; do not let your temper get the better of you; and the child in his con science will approve of your action however disagreeable it may be at the time. And in the years to come he will rise up and call you blessed. I have found it. So.

In these papers I shall recall many names. There are many more that I cannot remember. I shall reproduce some of the letters I have received. I wish it were so that. I could give them all. The whole is written with a view to placing in permanent form the delightful experiences I have had with my pupils.

I taught in Shoe Heel (maxton), in the rural schools of Wake County, in the Goldsboro city schools, in the Durham city schools, in the Raleigh schools, in Method, in Haywood and Pittsboro, Chatham County, and in Johnston County. I have been on the faculty of the A. T. Summer School, have con ducted Teacher's Institutes in Robeson, Wayne, Wake and Chatham counties; was Director of the Summer School for teachers of Rockingham County in 1921.
