Assistant Principal - College and Career

Assistant Principal - Jean Cabel

Welcome to the College and Career Readiness Department at St. Charles East!  The department is home to our seven Counselors and collaborates with the Student Services department to support student success.  It is our hope that as a result of their work with Counselors, students will be empowered to apply knowledge, utilize skills, and overcome challenges in preparation for post-secondary opportunities.  We want all of our students to be well prepared when they leave us!

A native Hoosier, my undergraduate work in Physical Education was completed in my hometown of Bloomington, Indiana at Indiana University.  I have a Masters of Arts in Teaching and an Administrator Certificate/Type 75 from Aurora University.  I’m beginning my 26th year in District 303 and during my tenure, I have worked at Thompson Middle School as a Physical Education Teacher, at Haines Middle School as an Assistant Principal, and at East as a teacher, Dean, and now Assistant Principal.  I serve as a Commissioner with the St. Charles Park District and through that work, network with Park District staff and community members for volunteer opportunities for our students. 

I am married to husband, Joe, who teaches and coaches swimming at East, and our daughter graduated from East in 2008.  The Cabel family bleeds Orange!

Thanks for taking the time to read about me and the College and Career Readiness Department.  I look forward to meeting you!
