Mrs. Ali Pries majored in philosophy and theology at Benedictine College in Atchison, KS. Seeking truth, choosing goodness, and learning to love beauty have been the catalysts for all her post-college endeavors including serving as a missionary on college campuses across the country. A substantial part of this program was to help college students understand the benefits of the virtuous life as well as inspire them to pursue truth and excellence. It was during her tenure as a missionary that she met her husband, Steve, whom she has been married to for 11 years. Ali went on to complete her Master’s Degree in Theology at the Augustine Institute in Denver, CO. When her only son, Kolbe, became school aged, she pursued a new career of teaching. She is delighted to be working as a 4th grade teacher at Golden View Classical Academy which enables her to assist with one of her true loves: the formation of young people into virtuous, joyful humans who will bring an abundance of life and truth to our beloved country. In her free time, she can be found reading, baking, meeting friends for coffee, and having many adventures with her wonderful family.
