Writing a note in your child's planner is a quick and easy line of communication as I see your child's planner each day.

I also encourage you to communicate through the CLASS MESSENGER app. I will discuss this in more detail at Back to School night, and display/pass out the necessary information.

 

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." -- Benjamin Franklin

 

 

My name is Karen Gabel and I just completed my 22nd year of teaching. I was hired at Lincoln Park Elementary School in September 1997 to begin my teaching career. I started out as a teacher assistant in the preschool disabilities classroom and after a year and a half, I was hired as a kindergarten teacher. After spending a year and a half in kindergarten, I moved on to first grade in 2000. I taught first grade for 11 years and in 2011, I moved to fourth grade for 8 years. This will be my first year teaching in the Resource Room and look forward to new challenges & fun!

I enjoy teaching children and my greatest satisfaction is seeing students succeed and watching them develop a love of learning.

Inspiring Quotes:

"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." --Albert Einstein
