For those who have been part of the Lasallian educational community for 3-5 years or more, you are already familiar with "the basics" but may be interested in going a little more deeply into the history, pedagogy, and spirituality of St. John Baptist de La Salle and the educational movement that began with him and the first Brothers.
The resources highlighted on this page are some of the ways that you could do that. While these are some resources, how you engage them is entirely up to you. No pressure or grades; just some really good things to sink your teeth into.
