This chapter presents oral history interviews conducted with five American nuns who served as educators: Sister Bonaventure Burke, Sister Gloria Perez, Sister Marlene Brownett, Sister Rosemary Rader, and Sister Margherita Marchione. The narratives capture the women's experiences over the past fifty years, beginning in the 1960s. Sister Bonaventure Burke lived in St. Bernard's Convent in Nashville, Tennessee; Sister Gloria Perez is the principal of an inner-city high school in Paterson, New Jersey; Sister Marlene Brownett, a member of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus who lives in a center-hall colonial in Summit, New Jersey; Sister Rosemary Rader is a Benedictine nun who has been a teacher in high school or college for most of her life, and served as prioress of her Benedictine community in St. Paul, Minnesota; Sister Margherita Marchione was a university professor for nineteen years.
