  • Jessica's significant energy and professional balance between school, home, and serving principals is a great model and successfully inspires principals to embrace the challenges of their day-to-day responsibilities. It is no surprise that she has been selected by her peers to be the 2018 National Distinguished Principal from Minnesota. Jessica' presentation style is infused with enthusiasm while grounded in research and best practice. She is an engaging and inspiring speaker who draws rave reviews from her audience. I have no doubt that you will thoroughly enjoy working with her.
  • Jon Millerhagen, Executive Director - Minnesota Elementary School Principals' Association
  • Jessica Cabeen is an outstanding presenter! I have had the pleasure of attending a large session she presented at a national conference. It was energizing, informative, practical, and inspirational. She is adept at speaking to classroom teachers as well as school and district administrators. We invited her to speak at one of our major educational conferences and the feedback we received from attendees was phenomenal!
  • Dr. Jeff Zoul, President - ConnectEDD
  • Jessica is not only an incredible leader, and speaker, but she is truly an outstanding facilitator of adult learning. She has served as a facilitator in our Minnesota Principals Academy at the University of Minnesota for the past five years and also assisted the Minnesota Department of Education and the Minnesota Elementary Principals Association in launching a PK-3 Academy for Minnesota leaders. She engages adult learners where they are at and helps them to grow in a safe environment.
