Cynthia Speace, Ed.D., was drawn to Cabrini because of its mission and her desire to prepare effective K-12 administrators. Recognizing the distinguished reputation of Cabrini’s graduate education program, Speace applied for a faculty position, and in July 2011 began teaching 600-level courses at the College.
Speace’s teaching philosophy is based on constructivism, in which students apply their experiences and perspectives to coursework, essentially creating their own unique understanding and knowledge of the subject matter.
Speace previously held several administrative positions in secondary education, including principal of Wyomissing Junior/Senior High School. She says that the most rewarding aspect of her time at Cabrini is learning about and appreciating the higher education system.
Speace earned a doctoral degree from Immaculata University, a master’s from Temple University and a bachelor’s from St. Joseph’s University.
Originally from Philadelphia, Speace lives with husband Dave and daughter Ellen in Lancaster County, where she is involved in community service and township governance.
She enjoys golf, art, travel and reading.
