Historic Teacher Spotlight: Emma Viola Yowell

The replica schoolhouse at the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek is typical of the style that Emma Viola Yowell may have taught in.  Born in Illinois about 1862, she began her teaching career there in 1886.  After moving to Florida in 1888, Emma taught at the Athens School in Polk County, followed by a transfer to Davenport in 1889.  The move to Osceola County in 1890 was the beginning of Emma’s fifty years of service to our community.
