Teacher/ Staff

In education, teachers facilitate student learning, often in a school or academy or perhaps in another environment such as outdoors. A teacher who teaches on an individual basis may be described as a tutor.

The objective is typically a course of study, lesson plan, or a practical skill, including learning and thinking skills. The different ways to teach are often referred to as the teacher's pedagogy. When deciding what teaching method to use, a teacher will need to consider students' background knowledge, environment, and their learning goals. A teacher may follow standardized curricula as determined by the relevant authority. The teacher may interact with students of different ages, from infants to adults, students with different abilities and students with learning disabilities.

In short, the teacher s here are good. they will help you wherever you are. Also the staff.

Life of Saint John Baptist de La Salle

John Baptist de la Salle, educational pioneer, founder of the world-wide Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, commonly called the Christian Brothers, was born in the cathedral town of Rheims, France, on April 30, 1651. His parents were people of standing, his father holding a judicial post. From childhood he gave evidence of such unusual piety that he was designated for the priesthood. At eleven he received the tonsure and at sixteen became a canon of the cathedral chapter at Rheims. Later he was sent to the seminary of St. Sulpice to complete his studies. The young canon, handsome in appearance and scholarly in his tastes, seemed destined for high ecclesiastical preferment. Soon after his return to Rheims he was to discover his true life workthe education of the poor. It was to be a long, hard struggle, with few tangible rewards, but he unquestionably started a movement which was to result in furthering free elementary instruction.

The social orders of seventeenth-century France were still cast in a rigid mold. Education, with rare exceptions, was for the rich and noble, and quite beyond the dreams of the great mass of the people. Their pitiful ignorance became the lifelong concern of John Baptist de la Salle. From the outset of his career he was thrown into contact with poor children. His first post was spiritual director of the Sisters of the Holy Infant and the orphanage they conducted. Through this work he came into contact with a wealthy woman, one of his own relations, who urged him to found a similar refuge for orphaned boys. A lay teacher, Arien Nigel, joined him, and such a home and school opened its doors. It was so successful that soon another institution of the same type was set up in the diocese. Father John now saw the way clear before himhe must devote his whole energy to the cause of education. But to educate you must have teachers, and the preparation of young schoolmasters to teach in these schools was his initial task. He invited a number of them to come and live in his own home that he might have more time to train and counsel them. His brothers objected to having their house taken over in this manner, so Father John moved with his group to more suitable quarters.

History of La Salle Antipolo

Construction on the school was begun on March 16, 1985. During this time, Kindergarten to Fourth Grade classes were temporarily held at La Salle Green Hills as construction was delayed because of the costs and logistics that were involved in building a school on a mountain.

Classes were transferred to the Antipolo campus on January 13, 1986 and were housed in two buildings. A third building was completed in the summer of 1987, with a fourth one being completed in 1989. The school's St. Benilde Multi-purpose Hall was finished in 1991, while the high school and laboratory-library buildings were completed in 1994.

In 2006, La Salle College became part of De La Salle Philippines, Inc.

The school is now called La Salle College, Antipolo City. Antipolo City is separated from La Salle College as not to relate the school only to the City of Antipolo but also to everyone. At present it caters to students from different parts of Rizal and Metro Manila.

What the heck are the brothers thinking, building a school in a mountain. Anyway, L.S.C.A. is situated in the mountains of Antipolo, Rizal Philippines. Where students are in exile. It's a good thing considering what powerful force lies in the city. I think this is the first La Salle school to be put in a frigging boondocks. I was thinking what makes a rich company to build a school in a place it shouldn't be.

Place: Conference Room
Brother 1: We need another school. We have placed every possible place we could think of.
Brother 2: (pointing at a map) Not one place, the mountains!
Brother 1: We have discussed this matter a long time ago. Its a costly job!
Brother 3: You said the we need another school, then thats the perfect place. WE WILL MAKE HISTORY!
*A fight erupted for 2 hours. Then, when they cool down...*
Brother 1: Ok! mountain. But where?
Brother 2: In Antipolo, Rizal. We dont have any major competition in there.
Brother 1:Alright. Rizal it is. We'll check the place.

The thing is, it's a major stepping stone for the school. It has broke the barrier between good education and hard to reach places. For a lowlander like me, It takes one hour to reach the place. We pass by some interesting places like a falls, a twisted intersection and even a poultry farm but after you pass the scenic route, there you will see the school. What a beauty.... blah blah. Then you have to dive down a steep road. Pretty fun if your a speed demon. After the roller coaster ride, you have to drive up again to reach the school. What a ride!
