Miss. Laura Tillotson
Miss. Laura Tillotson, 6th Grade Core, Latin 8, and Religion 7, is very excited to begin the school year at St. Rita’s. Having been classically educated herself, Miss Tillotson thrives on inspiring her students to seek what is true, good, and beautiful, and most importantly, to seek the source of truth, goodness, and beauty, which is God. Miss Tillotson majored in theology at Christendom College and double minored in philosophy and in Classical and Early Christian Studies (Latin and Greek). She has a special interest in medieval philosophy and history. Always eager to learn more, Miss Tillotson audits theology and philosophy graduate classes at the Dominican House of Studies in her free time. Miss Tillotson has been a volunteer youth minister, taught high school CCD, and also worked for Mother of Divine Grace School, tutoring high school students in religion, history, literature, paper writing, and Latin. Miss Tillotson holds her Advanced Catechist Certification from the Arlington Diocese and her teaching certification through the Virginia Catholic Education Association. She loves teaching at St. Rita’s because of the faith-filled community, traditional Catholic culture, and Christocentric philosophy of education she finds here!
