St. John Bosco (1815-1888)

Today's saint was an educator, who never forgot the practical side, and encouraged vocational training along with the religion and academic subjects.  Like St. Philip Neri before him, he would take to the streets, and reach out to unfortunate youth. 

Indeed, he built up a following before formal schools were constructed.  He achieved extraordinary success...

At the time of Don Bosco's death there were 250 houses of his Salesian Society in all parts of the world, containing 130,000 children, and from which there annually went out 18,000 finished apprentices.  (New Advent)

He was also the first saint who submitted to a press interview.  Canonized in 1934, Bosco remains a model of the ideal teacher.
