New One-Room Schoolteacher Teaches Students at the 1850 Schoolhouse

The Farmingville Historical Society is hosting a few upcoming schoolhouse field trips in the Spring of 2016 and was in search of a new one-room schoolteacher.  We are working with Susan Gil, a historic expert when it comes to one-room schoolhouses.  Susan joined us in December, 2015 to host a school session with our Farmingville Historical Society Board and some local students ranging from age 8 to 14.

Susan Gil will be joining us for our upcoming schoolhouse field trips as our one-room schoolteacher.  She is a tremendous asset to our team and the students who will be attending the field trips.

Susan made us feel like we were back in 1850.  We learned so much about what it was like to go to school in the 1850’s.” Anna M., age 11
