Miss Maisy B. Schreiner

Among the unusually successful teachers of Iowa is Miss Maisy B. Schreiner, who brings to her profession an unusually vigorous mind and a sympathetic understanding of boys and girls, which is one secret of her success.  She is a high school teacher and in a single season has been offered positions in six different cities, unsolicited.  She was christened Mary Boone, being named for her great grandmother who was a descendant of Daniel Boone of Kentucky.  Her father was the Rev. E. L. Schreiner, who for forty years was a prominent minister of the Methodist church in this state.  Her grandfather, Theodore Schreiner, was for many years a minister of the Lutheran denomination and for twenty-five years was Grand Tyler of the Masonic Grand Lodge of Iowa, and was lovingly known by Iowa Masons as "Father" Schreiner.  Her mother was Martha Ann Robinson, a daughter of the Rev. Anthony Robinson, a minister in the M. E. church for forty-three years.  Miss Schreiner is a graduate of the Iowa Wesleyan College, as were her father and mother and most of her kinsmen.  She has taken post-graduate work in the University of Chicago and in the Leland Stanford University, specializing in Latin.  She has taught in Iowa schools for nineteen years, eight years as principal of the Albia High School and six as principal of the Ames High School, and is now teaching Latin in the High School at Colorado Springs.  She has traveled extensively in this country and in Europe.  She is an Alpha Xi Delta and a P. E. O. and one of the finest women this state has produced.
