The Educators Learning Community
The two Educators Learning Communities are for incoming first-year Education majors interested in taking a reflective journey to explore who they want to be as an educator and discern what it means to be an engaged citizen of the world in local and global communities.
Both Educators Learning Communities invite students to develop self-awareness and deepen their understanding of diverse communities through focused class and extra-curricular experiences.
The courses that make up each Educators community support incoming students’ development of essential skills and growth mindset for success in the classroom and as life-long learners.
Outside of the classroom, students have the opportunity to participate in co-curricular and community-building activities.
- Past Educators have met with Cabrini graduates now working in diverse educational settings to talk about their experience at Cabrini and work with children and young people in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas.
- Participants can expect to enjoy time with classmates and faculty during special activities, family-style dinners, and off-campus trips to schools, performances, and museums to explore themes of cultural awareness, diversity, learning community bonding, and service for the common good.
