About Mary E. Polley

May E. Polley came to the Philippines as a pioneering teacher aboard the Transport Thomas. She was first assigned to Santa Barbara, Iloilo where she, in support of Principal WE Lutz, began the Iloilo Normal School in 1902. This institution grew to become what is now the Iloilo National High School and the West Visayas State University. She also served the President of the Philippine Normal School (now a University) in Manila from May 1929 to December 1929. She wrote educational materials, like the reader "Rosa and her Friends", in a continuing effort to make books which reflected the Philippine experience. More here:
