Abstract

The life stories of 24 retired women teachers are the focus of this intriguing book by Janina Trotman. Set in Western Australia between the years 1914-1940, the book traces their lives, experiences and views about “becoming and being” teachers from childhood through to the present. All of the women trained to become teachers through various teacher preparation programs at Claremont Teachers’ College, the first teacher training institution established in Western Australia.
