She was an influential teacher. Here is one example:
Carman re Caroline Peck
Interviewer: But you had taught school before you went to Syracuse.
Carman: I had taught school for two years. I didn’t go to high school. I went there to Saratoga Springs and took the Regents examination. I took the preliminaries, and after I finished the preliminaries the teacher at this school - her name was Caroline Peck, she was living in the neighborhood - she had gone to Genesee Normal School with the idea she wanted to be a teacher, and she would go into some urban community. But the year she graduated her mother died leaving her father who was kind of semi-invalid, and a bachelor brother. So what she did was, instead of going into the urban community, she went back to the home district and taught school. She was a wonderful teacher.
And she said, you ought to go to high school I said, “I know I can’t because my people can’t afford it.” And then she had a thought, and said, “If you want to study by yourself, and come down, I’ll help you evenings and Saturdays, and I think you can do the equivalent of high school work.” Which I did. And I went into Saratoga and took those examinations.
