Louis Laurent Marie Clerc was born into an important family on December 26, 1785 in La Balme-les-Grottes, in southeastern France.
i need to do something with my life ive been stuck here for 11 years .Im going to make a deaf school!!
. His father, Joseph Francois, was the royal civil attorney, justice of the peace, and from 1780 to 1814 was mayor of their village.
WELCOME!! We are so happy you came
His mother's father was a magistrate in another town. so, his family knew and practiced law.
ive lived a pretty darn good life .1858 is not a bad year
For the next 11 years he stayed at home, exploring the village and taking care of their cows, turkeys, and horses. He did not go to school and did not learn to write. Thus, as a deaf child, Clerc had neither an education nor a systematic mode of communication.
He became a friend of Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet and together they founded America's first school for the deaf. Laurent Clerc was born in a small village near Lyons, France, on December 26, 1785.
Clerc went on to complete 50 years of teaching 41 of those in the States, retiring in 1858, when he was 73 years old. Although retired, he continued his advocacy for deaf education, maintaining an active interest in the school, and appearing as a guest or speaker at many academic functions.
