    I recall Sister Margaret Jogues while her student in Transfiguration grammar school in Brooklyn, NY 5th and 6th grade , in 1965 and 1966. She was a good teacher, and at times firm .Attending Catholic school during the 1960’s was quite different than today but that ‘s another story.

    Thank you Sister .
