Student Teachers

Our student teachers are a solid example of what “Education of the Heart” means to me.  Each semester we send our pre-service teachers out into schools to practice the fundamental teaching skills they learned in the classroom.  These skills would be less effective if the student teacher also did not possess other positive, valuable qualities such as, kindness, patience and empathy which are cultivated during their college experience at Cabrini.  Creating a classroom environment that is safe, tolerant and respectful to all, allows the learner to grow academically as well as morally.  The child in the classroom benefits as well as our culture.  Our student teachers are doing their part in “paying it forward.”
