Faculty and Staff

The faculty at Saint Vincent de Paul School have an average of 12 years of teaching experience - some as long as 35 years and others in year 1.  These teachers have dedicated their lives to Catholic Education and it is because of them that our students thrive academically, physically, and spiritually.  img 0122
img 0197 As our mission states:  St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School is rooted in the Truth and Love of Christ and His Church and is committed to Education the Whole Child for the Future.  Our teachers enable us to live out this mission every day and serve our students and their families well. 
As a further testament to our school, almost 10 current teachers and staff members have their children (or grandchildren) currently enrolled or had their children graduate from Saint Vincent de Paul School.  One teacher and four staff members are SVdP Alumni themselves!

All of our teachers are licensed and certified by the Colorado Department of Education.  Ten faculty & administration members either have completed or are in the process of completing advanced degrees.
