About David Fleischacker
In 1998, I met Phyllis Wallbank, a wonderful Montessori trainer, teacher, and leader who revealed to me both the profound discoveries of Montessori, but also how these link to the riches of the Catholic Tradition, with saints such as St. Thomas Aquinas, with Blessed John Henry Newman, and with Bernard Lonergan. I had been studying all of them deeply since the 1980s. She opened the doors to a mission in life for which I feel entirely inadequate, but of which I can no longer remain silent. My name is Dr. David Fleischacker. I am dean of a school of arts and sciences at a Catholic University. I love my job, my family, my Church, and our Lord.
