The award for the youngest teacher ever goes to a young lady by the name of Charlotte Mary Yonge. At the tender age of seven, Charlotte began to teach in her local village Sunday school. Prior to this, Charlotte had been taught by her father at home.
Charlotte was born on august 11th, 1823, in a place called Otterbourne, in Hampshire. She took on the role of Sunday school teacher when preachers realised that Charlotte was not only a font of knowledge, but she found it easy to teach children of her own age, younger and older.
By the time she was 15 years old, Charlotte Yonge had written her first novel. She got it published. By this time Charlotte was very interested in religion and with the money she received from her first book, The Heir of Redcliffe, she helped to finance a missionary ship which was bound for the South Seas.
Charlotte continued to carve a career out of writing and had many more books published. The one that still remains today is The Little Duke. Charlotte died on March 24th, 1901 at the age of 78.
