Summary The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie tells the story of an educator's effect on impressionable young ladies at the Marcia Blaine School for Girls in Edinburgh, revealing the challenges they face growing up in 1930s Scotland. Devoted to her students, Miss Brodie endeavors to fill them with a love of art and culture and as much self-confidence as she possesses. In doing so, she offends the conservative Miss Gaunt, tests the patience of headmistress Miss Mackay, and incites the passions of married art instructor Teddy Lloyd.
