A paradigm that describes the Lasallian philosophy of education is presented, together with a discussion of the components of the paradigm. The article expounds on the Lasallian Shared Mission of providing "a human and Christian education to the young, especially the poor". The elements of Lasallian spirituality-faith, zeal, and community-are presented from the perspective of the Founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, John Baptist de La Salle. The article articulates how contemporary Lasallians could embody this spirituality in daily life. Finally, the article describes the image of a teacher as culled from the writings of the Patron of Teachers, St. John Baptist de La Salle.
