“Education of the Heart” encapsulates St. Frances Xavier Cabrini’s approach to reaching and teaching each and every learner. Before phrases such as “Differentiated Instruction”, “Universal Design”, I.D.E.A., or Core Curriculum flowed from the lips of educators or legislators, Mother Cabrini espoused this holistic and pulsating approach to teaching and learning. Mother Cabrini set the standard for blending the spirit and needs of each child into every lesson in order to reach the heart, soul, and mind of each of His unique creations. The Cabrini College Teacher Education Department remains committed to modeling St. Frances Xavier Cabrini’s inspirational and motivational legacy to future generations of educators in order to maximize each child’s gifts.
