Jessica's energetic and genuine delivery of professional development at our staff welcome back gave us the tools to kick off a great new school year. Our teachers had an amazing learning experience and a wonderful opportunity to use these tools to balance life like a pirate and still make a positive impact on our students' lives. I'm personally looking forward to finishing reading her latest book Lead with Grace.

Jessica provided two exceptional keynote presentations, covering parent engagement and self-care, to over 500 participants at our Early Childhood Education and Behavioral Health Summit. Both presentations were engaging, motivating and from the heart. Personally, I walked away with a renewed passion for working with kids and some excellent strategies for prioritizing and organizing my life. The feedback and reviews that we received following the event couldn't have been better

Jessica delivered an engaging morning of dialogue with our kindergarten team that affirmed, provoked, and challenged past practice and future planning. Jessica's ability to be vulnerable as she provided insights into her own educational journey as a parent, as a mother, and as a leader afforded her the needed credibility to resonate with our teaching staff and their administrators
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.
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!
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
