An American Teacher In The Philippines

George William Sutterthwaite looked at the map of the Philippine Islands in the office of the American volunteer teachers inside the Walled City of Manila, commonly called Intramuros. The office of the American volunteer teachers was located near the Ayuntamiento in the walled city of the former colonizers of the Philippines, the Spaniards.
George was one of the first Americans who responded to the call by the US Federal government for American volunteer teachers to the Philippine Islands in the year 1901. He arrived in Manila, together with other American volunteer teachers via the ship USS Thomas. They were called by the moniker Thomasites.
Single and adventurous, George wanted to help the youth of the Philippines by teaching them English, Mathematics, and Industrial Arts. These were his favorite subjects. He had been teaching these subjects to American students for two years. He thought that teaching these subjects to the young people in the Philippine Islands would give him more challenges, and more meaning as a teacher, by helping the less privileged youth of the islands.
