In the fall of 1909, at the opening of the School of Practical Arts, she became a member of the staff of the department of foods and cookery, to which during her thirteen years of service she made important and lasting contributions. She organized some of the fundamental courses of the department; she trained several of the most successful teachers of its present staff; and she won, through her rare teaching ability and her gentle and cheerful personality, not only the high respect but the love of both students and colleagues.
