LaSallian Family


Thursday, April 7, is the feast of St. John Baptist de La Salle, founder of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. He is also the patron saint of teachers, and the “Father of Modern Education.” He created the separation of the ages into grades, and developed the “School of Norms” for teachers, aka “Normal School” or the “Ecole Normale”.
