The Kids Post - - Private Education Guide 2014 -

F or Robert Lundy, teach­ing is some­what of a fam­ily af­fair. His fa­ther, whom he re­gards as his best teacher, taught for over 30 years. “[He] always talked about what a re­ward­ing ca­reer teach­ing is,” he says. “When I be­gan my ca­reer in ed­u­ca­tion, I wanted to do some­thing to make a dif­fer­ence in the lives of oth­ers.” As Vi­cePres­i­dent of Ad­vance­ment, Lundy can of­ten be found in­ter­act­ing with stu­dents, staff, par­ents and prospec­tive families. “Dur­ing school tours and the in­ter­view process, I am proud to talk about the rich his­tory and tra­di­tion at De La Salle … I take ev­ery op­por­tu­nity to dis­cuss the won­der­ful things our cur­rent stu­dents and alumni are do­ing.” He is in a for­tu­nate po­si­tion that al­lows him to see the stu­dents he ini­tially in­ter­viewed en­ter the school, and then grad­u­ate “as well-rounded young men and women ready to use their skills, tal­ents and good for­tune for the ben­e­fit of oth­ers.” It is that phi­los­o­phy of giv­ing one­self to help the com­mu­nity that Lundy tries de­vel­op­ing in all of his stu­dents. “As a mem­ber of the Lasal­lian com­mu­nity, it is im­por­tant that stu­dents de­velop the skills to suc­ceed aca­dem­i­cally, while main­tain­ing the hu­mil­ity to read­ily be of ser­vice to

oth­ers.”
