My character is a school mistress who is VERY strict. She has a ruler for kids who are bad, and a whisper stick for talkers, a whisper stick is like reins. It is a wooden stick and she puts it in your mouth and ties it as tight as she can. You cant talk, eat or hardly breathe. The ruler is for whipping bad kids on the butt. The Dunce Cap was for class clowns, you'd be a clown you would sit in the corner with your Dunce Cap on. She would give us all chalkboards to write on, simple math problems, or a letters booklet to work on. She has a lot of rules. A quiet child is a good child, no talking ect. Catherine was really soft looking but SUPER fierce. She was all about her rules if you broke them it was a whipped butt for you. Even a question to your friend and you would have a 3 hour whisper stick. 1 small wise crack and you would be in the corner. If you follow the rules and turn in your work, you will have a great school year!
