Titre original : One Day as a Naughty Teacher
Miss Pony charges Candy to supervise the other orphans, when she and Sister Mary have to attend a meeting, and while trying her best to command respect as a "teacher", she notices a new girl, Daisy, who does not come outside to play. Candy coaxes Daisy outside and coaches her into ascending the tree. Having accomplished the climb, Daisy shouts to her heart's content, but then faints. Meanwhile the frenzied mailman, passing by to deliver a letter from Annie, orders Candy to bring down Daisy immediately. Daisy has hemophilia and could bleed to death even with a minor wound. The next morning, the eager Daisy slips outside and ascends the tree by herself, but takes some damage. Though Daisy has lost quite a lot of blood, the doctor manages to prevent further blood loss. Feeling involved, the other orphans pray for her speedy recovery, and include her more in their adapted games afterwards. In her letter, Annie details how Saint Paul's Academy has become a dull place since Candy's departure and that the Cornwell brothers and herself feel lost and forlorn without her.
