Concordia University Ann Arbor has announced its student of the month for May.

CUAA Senior Alexandria “Allie” Cadavieco was nominated by her professor as a servant leader, life-long learner, and reflective practitioner of the school of education.

“Allie is a proactive student who puts time and effort into her work,” said her professor. “She is eager to learn so that she can make a positive impact on the children in her future classroom.”

Cadavieco is an elementary education major with language arts and early childhood endorsements.

Last Sunday, May 15, Cadavieco walked across the stage at Concordia University’s baccalaureate and commencement ceremonies. She is preparing to student teach in fall 2016 at St. Thomas School in Ann Arbor.

In addition to the requirements of her field of study, she was a member of the Concordia Choir, a tutor in the Academic Resource Center (ARC), and was also actively involved in the early childhood society where she held board positions and frequently volunteered her time at events like babysitting for faculty gatherings or organizing the society’s table for events like Concordia Fest or Earth Day.

Some may recognize Cadavieco as she has shared bits and pieces of her educational journey on various CUAA television and radio commercials throughout the last academic year. To hear more about her story and passion for teaching, visit
