Meet our amazing teachers at Cabrini

"Teaching lays the foundation for Faith and life in our children. The major reason for our school's existence is to develop Christ-like people. The methods have changed over the years. Instead of the old stories of teachers who smacked the student's knuckles with rulers, today we develop an atmosphere of close relationships, a strong supporting environment. Instead of old-fashion teaching, we teach our students to live out their Christian beliefs through service to others, unity in diversity, hope and sharing in the midst of a demanding materialistic world." -- Stephanie Van Leuven (Former Principal, St. Frances Cabrini School)
