Having little faith in the teachers that come and go through her small village school in Athabascan, Alaska, Fredericka begins to see Miss Agnes in a different light as she and all the rest of the pupils start to enjoy their lessons and finally learn how to read and write.

From the Publisher:
A year they'll never forget

Ten-year-old Frederika (Fred for short) doesn't have much faith that the new teacher in town will last very long. After all, they never do. Most teachers who come to their one-room schoolhouse in remote, Alaska leave at the first smell of fish, claiming that life there is just too hard.

But Miss Agnes is different -- she doesn't get frustrated with her students, and she throws away old textbooks and reads Robin Hood instead! For the first time, Fred and her classmates begin to enjoy their lessons and learn to read and write -- but will Miss Agnes be like all the rest and leave as quickly as she came?

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"A quiet, yet satisfying account." July 1, 2000

New York Times Book Review
"Miss Agnes, a breed of her own even among the disproportionately high ranks of life-altering teachers found in children's books, combines conviction with humility. The villagers are not her novices in the appreciation of her native culture; instead, she offers up her education as a kind of toolbox to enable them to do their work better, as in teaching them math so they can't be cheated..." - Elizabeth Devereaux 01/21/2001
