Anne of Avonlea picks up where Anne of Green Gables left readers. Anne, now sixteen years old, is now teaching at the nearby Avonlea school, while she simultaneously furthers her own studies alongside Gilbert. Anne's encounters with both her students and her neighbors prompt her to reflect on her own teaching methods, and the reader—through Anne—experiences many of the pains and joys associated with the teaching vocation.
Notably, Montgomery vocalizes her own criticisms of contemporary education methods through her work, electing to have her protagonist explore the merits and virtues of the work of education reformers like John Dewey.
