Fanny Bloomfield is the third Bloomfield child. This four-year-old moves up to the school room soon after Agnes begins working for the Bloomfields. Although she had hoped that Fanny would be easier to teach since her mother had described the girl as shy, Agnes finds she is as disrespectful as the other two children. Fanny is mischievous and enjoys playing tricks on his teacher. When the three students gang up against her, Agnes is able to get almost nothing done with them.
