Mary Lynn joined the team as Event Coordinator at Lourdes as a recently retired art teacher from Clayton Elementary School in Englewood, Colorado. She is thrilled to contribute her creative panache, team building, and feverish list-making to our parish events. Mary Lynn was hired as the Englewood School District’s first elementary school art teacher, and was recently named the Colorado Elementary Art Teacher of the Year by the Colorado Art Education Association. Her advice to her students to this day is to, “display your masterpieces,” “use every color in your crayon box,” and, “believe in yourself.” She resides in Littleton, Colorado, with three children, and her husband Michael—all of whom are in love with their Catholic Faith. In her spare time, Mary Lynn perpetuates her passion for art in her brand new art studio, where she teaches various clay printmaking and mixed-media art classes.
