About our Principal

Ms. Cabrina Williams-Leneau has been in education for 31 years.  She received her Bachelors of Education degree in Math and Computer Science from Newberry College(SC) and her Masters of Education degree in Administration and Supervision from Clemson University.

She began her teaching career as a high school math teacher and coach in South Carolina. While traveling with her husband who served 21 years in the U.S. Navy, she had an opportunity to teach 2 years of middle school math and science in La Maddalena, Italy. Upon returning to the states, she taught a few more years in S.C. before the next military move that landed her here in Illinois where she taught math at Warren Township High School.

After 9 years in the classroom, Ms. Leneau began her administrative career as the assistant principal of Webster Middle School in 2003. Since becoming a Waukegan Public School employee, she has held several district and school level administrative positions--serving as the district’s Math and Science coordinator, assistant principal at Jefferson as well as at Waukegan High School before becoming the principal of Glenwood Elementary School just 9 years ago.

Throughout her career she has also enjoyed coaching several sports at different levels. Those sports include- basketball, softball, volleyball, track, and even high school football.  If you have not guessed, Ms. Leneau really enjoys athletics. As a matter of fact, she continues to officiate high school basketball. You may have seen her on the court a few times wearing those black and white stripes.

Ms. Leneau's career in education and youth athletics has allowed her to do what she loves most--creating and providing a pathway for youth to know that the sky is the limit and that hard work pays off. Being an advocate and witness to the growth of our youth truly fills her heart with joy!

The only thing that brings her joy greater than her career is her family. She currently resides in Gurnee, Illinois with her husband, Izell, of 29 years. Together they have two adult daughters, Alexis and Amber-both who reside in the Chicagoland area.
