Anne Of Avonlea Summary
At the beginning of book 2, Anne is just starting her first term as a teacher at Avonlea School and Gilbert is teaching at a school in a village nearby called White Sands. Both Anne and Gilbert are a little bit older and although Anne sees him as nothing more than a friend, Gilbert is starting to see Anne as his perfect mate. He is careful to keep this to himself though!
When Anne begins working as a teacher she sees her students and her teaching ideals through rose-colored glasses. She thinks it is wrong to hit a child if they misbehave and she believes that she can win over her students with kindness and reasoning. Most of her friends however don’t really believe this is achievable.
Anne manages to win over all her students except for one, Anthony Pye. He is a badly behaved and rude boy and one day decides to put a mouse in Anne’s desk. This pushes Anne over the edge and she whips him in anger. Afterward, she is devastated that she could have done such a thing and she struggles to come to terms with it. However, after the hiding, Anthony sees her in a new light and he begins to respect her and changes his behavior.
After Marilla’s cousin passes away she adopts her cousin’s six-year-old twin children. Davy and Dora are as different as they come with Dora being well-behaved and sweet and Davy constantly getting into trouble!
In the story we are also introduced to other colorful characters who Anne becomes good friends with such as Miss Lavender Lewis, Paul Irving and his father, as well as Mr. Harrison and his foul mouthed parrot.
Towards the end of the story, Marilla’s best friend and neighbor, Mrs. Rachel Lynde moves to Green Gables after her husband passes away. This allows Anne to at last have the opportunity to go to college. Anne and Gilbert begin making plans to go to college together in the Autumn.
