Ms. Kathleen Calder and Ms. Peggy St. John to be presented with Letters of Affiliation to the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools

Ms. Kathleen Calder began teaching at De La Salle High School in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1981, where she has served as Lead English teacher, Yearbook and Archives moderator, Key Club moderator, NO-SF News & Letters correspondent, and founder of the Cavalier Sports Hall of Fame.  She completed the Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies and continues to serve as a community director, served as secretary and archivist of the 2005 Regional Mission Assembly, and represented the New Orleans-Santa Fe District at RELAN’s inaugural Lasallian Womens Symposium.  In announcing her affiliation, Brother Timothy wrote, “The evident love and passion that emanates from Kathleen is familiar to us: it’s the “interior disposition” of the Founder! Her daily attention to inculcating in youngsters a love for what is right and what is good also inspired us to petition for her affiliation. She honors Saint La Salle’s vision to see the goodness in each person, and to call each to honor his and her inner angel.”


Ms. Peggy St. John
joined the De La Salle faculty in 1982.  During her tenure she has taught Math and Special Education teacher; moderated Mu Alpha Theta, the Academic Games team, the Chess Club, and the ACT/SAT prep course; coordinated Summer School, the Summer Scholars program, and the State Literary Rally; and served as Math Department Coordinator,  Dean of Academics, Assistant Principal for Academics, and Principal.  Observed Brother Timothy about Ms. St. John, “The fervor and zeal she brings to her work, whether as an administrator or a teacher, inspires us all. She honors Saint La Salle’s vision to cooperate with God in seeing in the kid an emerging adult.  In her leadership ministry with faculty and staff she exemplifies the values and virtues that lie at the heart of this vision.”
