Miss Laura Tillotson
Miss Laura Tillotson, 6th Grade Core & 8th Grade Latin, is very excited to begin the school year at St. Rita’s. 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, and Miss Tillotson audits theology and philosophy graduate classes at the Dominican House of Studies in her free time. Before teaching at St. Rita’s, Miss Tillotson played the organ for Mass as a parish music director, was a volunteer youth minister, 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 thrives on inspiring students to seek what is true, good, and beautiful, and most importantly, to seek the source of truth, goodness, and beauty, which is God.
