Adjunct instructor, Philip Drey has taught at Mount Mercy since 1999. He holds a PhD from Andrews University, emphasizing Biblical Archaeology and Languages.

In addition to his position at Mount Mercy, Drey is an adjunct instructor at Kirkwood Community College (traditional online and ADVANCE courses) and is a full-time teacher in the Theology Department at Xavier High School, Cedar Rapids, IA.

He has also worked closely with the Archdiocese of Dubuque to implement the USCCB Framework in diocesan Catholic high schools and parishes. His duties at Xavier and his work with the Diocese led him to create his own business, Curriculum Resources for Catholic Educators. This innovative online company allows high school educators to upload/download curriculum resources to aid in teaching not only the Framework but also in incorporating Catholicity throughout a high school curriculum.

Drey deeply enjoys spending time with his wife, Amanda, and trying to keep up with his two boys, Cooper and Carter.
