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.
