Aliza Jackson

A Colonial Schoolmaster

A Little About Me!

My name is Aliza Jackson. I am a colonial schoolmaster. I live in a two room house and I live alone. I am 26 years old. I live in the colony of Delaware. I am not married and I have no kids. I am related to Emmanuel Johnson, Emma Waters, and Lauren Pruyn is one of my best friends. I cook, sleep, and sew, in one room, called the keeping room.

As a schoolmaster I teach kids how to read write and their religion. I am a woman

but schoolmasters were usually men. My job also included running errands,

ringing the church bell, and leading chores. I do not get paid for these extras. I do

get paid for teaching. I am paid by the students’ parents. I am paid with food. I

teach at my house. My students come to my house to learn. My trade is a good

service, because I teach other people.
