Heart of a Teacher

Later that evening Elizabeth gets a surprise visitor, Rosemary, who tells her she heard the news of Elizabeth’s firing and is livid. She is later joined by more friends who offer their support as Elizabeth prepares to embark on her journey to confront Higgins and fight for her job.

Bill find Henry and the two decide to set aside their differences for the sake of the town. As the two shake hands, Abigail spies on them through her window and is not happy with seeing the two men being chummy.

The next morning, Abigail says goodbye to Cody and sets out to Camp Fullerton with Elizabeth. Cody tells Elizabeth how much the class misses her and she assures him she is going to fight to get her job back. Meanwhile, Jack is getting ready to head to Union City with the Tate Brothers.

Elizabeth meets a nervous Thomas Higgins at his office. She demands he retract the letter and he refuses, saying she is in no position to make any demands. It all comes down to her word against his. She tearfully pleads for her job back, telling him that teaching is her life. When he says he will retract the letter if she re-thinks his advances, a shocked Elizabeth storms out.
