    Corinne McCabe has been in education for nineteen years.  Throughout her career, she has taught multiple grade levels, supported teachers and students through her instructional coaching position, and served the students, families, and staff as Assistant Principal of Roy DeShane.  She is thrilled to continue partnering with the families of Carol Stream School this Fall.

    Corinne holds a Master of Educational Leadership from DePaul University, a Master of Science in Special Education-High Incidence from the University of Kansas, and is currently in the dissertation writing phase of a Doctor of Educational Technology degree from Central Michigan University.  Most recently, Corinne obtained her certification in Applied Educational Neuroscience through Butler University.  Ms. McCabe has also worked at the university level as an adjunct professor with both graduate and undergraduate students in the education field.

    On a more personal note, Ms. McCabe resides in St. Charles and comes from a family of teachers.  She enjoys being active, running, and playing softball as much as she can.  You may even find her playing kickball, basketball, or swinging on the playground with students at recess!

    Ms. McCabe is passionate about the importance of education in our society and is devoted to the field.  She is looking forward to working with the staff, students, and families to ensure the success of all students at Carol Stream School.
