World Teachers’ Day

Published on

Happy World Teachers’ Day! Today, we’d like to introduce you to two members of the Grey Nuns of Montreal who have worked in this profession.

Sister Marie-Rose Lacroix (1895-1989) had a long career as a teacher. She taught science (physics and chemistry) and literature at Institut Marguerite d’Youville (from 1934 to 1967) and, from 1967 to the 1980s, gerontology and geriatrics at Pierrefonds.

Sister Juliette Leclerc (1911-1983) also had a distinguished teaching career at the Couvent et Foyer d’Youville in Saint-Benoît (1936-1937) and at the Institut Familial (from 1937 to 1944, from 1947 to 1948 and from 1949 to 1964, she was director of this home school).
