Our 4th Grade Teacher

My name is Mary Defilippis. I have been teaching 4th grade since 2011. After I graduated from University of Dallas, I began teaching in San Diego, CA. I taught at a small, Catholic academy for three years, after which I decided to move closer to family in Denver. I was then hired as the 4th grade teacher at Lourdes in 2014 and couldn’t be happier. I have found the home and community I have longed for here at Lourdes, among the parish, faculty and staff. The classical curriculum at Lourdes draws out what is innate in the students and the teachers: the Truth, Goodness, and Beauty of Christ. I am grateful to be at a school where the heart and mind are nourished together, for as Aristotle says, “Education of the mind without education of the heart is no education at all.”
