I looked at the bell on my desk and thought “This bell is mine to ring!

I am the teacher!” At nine o’clock I grasped the bell firmly by the handle, leaned out the door, and rang loud and clear. Twenty-seven children rushed in through the door… So began the teaching career of Edith Smith Van Kleek. The Way It Was chronicles Van Kleek’s experiences as a student and teacher in one-room schools in rural Alberta. From her first year attending school in the High Prairie country in 1916, to the closure of her last rural schoolhouse in 1961, Edith Van Kleek recalls a bygone era in Canadian educational history.

Her personal recollections paint a vivid picture of the challenges she faced, from juggling students from grades one through nine in one small room, to extreme weather conditions and boarding with local families. But through it all, her determination, enthusiasm, and love for her students is unmistakable. Whether you remember one-room schoolhouses or just enjoy hearing about “the way it was,” this charming collection of stories is sure to delight.
