THE SEPTEMBER YEARS

Author: Vera Gauley Munro

Synopsis: Vera Gauley Munro, at age eighty-six, remembers and describes life in thirteen schools in and round Montreal, from 1925 to 1963. As a teacher and principal, she has been “privileged to sample lifestyles and culture,” from rural Avoca and Grenville, to inner-city Montreal and suburban Dorval. Her own school days in Grenville were the inspiration for her career in education. The School for Teachers at Macdonald College of McGill University started her on her way. Now, she says, “I have a deep and growing sense of my responsibility to share these memories of times that are so long gone.
