Mrs. Karen Calabrese

Mrs. Calabrese (aka Coach Cal) has been a Health, PE, and Drivers Education teacher at Wheaton North HS since 2003. Prior to that, she worked for a Sports Performance Enhancement Program training athletes coming from all levels of the game.  When asked what she likes most about her job she replied, "The students!  It is truly a privilege to work with students like the ones we have here at Wheaton North."   Mrs. Calabrese is also on our Coaching staff here at Wheaton North.  She coached girls basketball her first 3 years here, was our Varsity Softball coach for 9 seasons, and is currently in her 19th year as our Varsity Girls Golf coach.  She loves the coaching part of her job, but with 2 small children at home, the co-curricular interests had to take a backseat to family.  Mrs. Calabrese shared that being able to attend a wide variety of WN Activity and Athletic events is an added bonus of being a single season Coach.
