Saint Jean-Baptiste de La Salle or John Baptist de La Salle (born 30 April 1651 in Reims, France; died 7 April 1719 in Saint-Yon, Rouen) was a priest, educational reformer, and founder of Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. He is a saint of the Roman Catholic church, and the patron saint of teachers.
