Fearless Females Blog Post-March 9: Family Documents

In honor of National Women’s History Month, Lisa Alzo of The Accidental Genealogist blog presents Fearless Females: 31 Blogging Prompts to Celebrate Women’s History Month.

March 9 — Take a family document (baptismal certificate, passenger list, naturalization petition, etc.) and write a brief narrative using the information.

Since I do not have any family documents on my female relatives such as the ones listed above, I decided to share one of  my mother’s teaching credential.

My mother Betty taught for three years at the Los Angeles City School District and then twenty-five years at the San Diego Unified School District.

Betty Peters Porter in class

The State of California issued the Service Credential to Betty Peters Porter. It was an Administrative (Examination) and the class was Clear. She could teach Grades-Preschool, Grades 1-12, and adult classes. This certificate was valid November 17-1977 to December 1, 1982.

Looking at this certificate, I knew she had to have a couple of others as she began teaching in 1963 and retired in the early 1990’s. She mainly taught 5th and 6th gifted cluster classes.
