The tactful teacher, by judicious
ly visiting in the homes of her pu

and entertaining io her host and
hostess, will cause 'them to speak
kindly and complimentary of her
to others: and wjiile she is the sub

patrons, her reputation is increas

factor in shaping and moulding
public opinion concerning her work
in the school room.
If the teacher is indifferent about
visiting her patrons, some of them

is “stuck up” and thinks herself

bitter resentment towards her. and
while they may not openly express
their secret dissatisfaction, they
withhold the praise and co-opera

correct version of proceedings that

where, as for that matter. Un
fortunately, and to the teacher’s
detriment, pupils often willfully
and grossly misrepresent at home

their false exugerated reports are
accepted by the parents, who have
no other avenges through which to
gain information as to the school
