      He worked as a School Master from September 1810 to May 1827 in Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania.

      In his best years, serving two terms of classes he was able to earn $36.00 per year and supplemented his income by working on local farms to support his wife and four children.

      The single story schoolhouse had a second story added with an overhang over the front door. There was a trap-door access to the second story with a ladder that could be pulled up at night. The only heat came from the first story classroom and the stove

      The term of school was three months. Tuition was fifty cents a month per pupil, and there were generally twelve pupils; making a monthly salary of six dollars: and eighteen dollars per term.

      The Bible and Luther's Catechism were the text books. All instruction was in German. The curriculum comprised the four R's: Reading, 'Riting, 'Rithmetic, and Religion.
