He was also taught by the school’s director, Abbe´ Roch Ambroise Sicard. Clerc completed his studies in eight years and proved himself brilliant. He became a tutor at the school, and later began teaching the highest class. In 1808, Clerc had the opportunity to go to St. Petersburg, Russia, to help run a new school for deaf students. The proposed director of the school, Jean-Baptiste Jauffret, knew little of deaf people or sign language, so Clerc urged Sicard to let him accompany Jauffret to Russia.

I could not do otherwise. I am afraid, my dear sir, that I have misunderstood some of your questions, & am aware that I have not exactly answered your expectations; but this is so puzzling a subject, that I am glad to dismiss it and to refer you to any other D[eaf] & D[umb] opinions more deeply versed in the sciences of metaphysics and logic than is yours truly. LC Autobiographical Sketch In 1851, Clerc was asked to write a brief account of his life for inclusion in a book honoring Gallaudet, who had recently died.
