He was born to a noble and wealthy French family. Ordained in 1678, he sold all his goods in 1684 and with 12 men formed "œThe Brothers of the Christian Schools,"� who were dedicated to the education (religious & secular) of poor boys. He set up many schools, teacher training schools and even a school for delinquent boys. He introduced new approaches to teaching, including classroom teaching (not one-on-one) in the vernacular (not Latin), with student silence, using a question and answer method. He is the patron of educators, school principals and of schoolteachers. His feast is April 7.
