Rob Devlin

Head of School, Seventh Grade Leadership Teacher

Appointed in 2005

Leaving my hometown and a fabulous school in Houston was a difficult decision, but the family feel of the St. George community, coupled with an outstanding academic preparation and solid spiritual foundation, made the move to St. George a great option for me and for my family.

The greatest blessings in my life have been my faith, my family, and my friends. My wife and I have been married since 1991 and have been blessed with three amazing children. I enjoy all types of sports, especially swimming and mountain biking. I also enjoy photography, spending time with my family, reading and eating out.

In the words of Louis Pasteur, “when I approach a child he inspires in me two sentiments: tenderness for what he is and respect for what he may become.” I believe that meaningful, lasting learning is firmly rooted in experience and is perfected in the context of relationships within a safe, challenging, and supportive environment. As an educator, I have the honor, the privilege, and the awesome responsibility of contributing to this complex process of imparting understanding and fostering growth in others. It is my great opportunity as an educational leader to facilitate and inspire the type of growth and learning that results from pursuing a dream, facing a challenge, or conquering a fear.
