Why do I enjoy teaching at Cabrini? Whenever I tell anyone about Cabrini I can’t help but smile. Cabrini felt like home to me from the first time I walked in the doors. Students are known as more than just a number. I am proud to share my knowledge with the students I have at Cabrini.
How would you describe your teaching style and methods? My teaching style is varied. I will use a style that is best suited to the needs of the content. My teaching goes beyond just the book. I enjoy having time to share real life moments with my students.
