This essay extends Sybil Oldfield’s biographical treatment of Mary Sheepshanks as it speculates about what Virginia Stephen learned at Morley College about teaching and about writing. The essay discusses Morley College and Virginia Stephen’s teaching there, particularly her teaching of composition; traces the relationship between Stephen and her principal, Mary Sheepshanks; and argues that Sheepshanks may have indirectly taught Virginia Woolf how to use pedagogy in her essays.

Keywords:   Mary Sheepshanks, Virginia Woolf, Morley College, teaching composition, mentoring
