David J. Gilbert is the College Dean of Co-Curriculars and an Assistant Professor of Great Texts at The College at Saint Constantine. Mr. Gilbert also teaches Great Books and Ethics for the high school. He serves the school leadership as a member of The President’s Cabinet and Head of St. Anne House. He received his Master of Arts in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics at Talbot School of Theology, and a BA in Philosophy from the University of North Texas. He spent several years teaching philosophy and religion to sailors on board three deployed United States Navy aircraft carriers with the Navy’s College Afloat program. Before coming to Saint Constantine, he was most recently a founding faculty member and the Associate Director of The Academy at Houston Baptist University.
As a native Texan and identical twin, David defends the use of “y’all” and constantly refers to himself as “we.” He cares about the history of cinema, loves books by Dostoevsky, and can’t resist a solid joke. When he’s not reading for pleasure or to prepare for classes, he enjoys going to the movies, completing puzzles, playing with his two young sons Galen and Theodore, and spending time at home with his wife Cate. Cate and David are currently expecting their third child, a daughter, due December 2020!
