Hello and welcome to room 106!
My name is Karen Abels and this is my 37th year teaching . I taught for ten years in Oak Park School District, and 27 years in Birmingham. I have taught grades kindergarten through fifth and spent six years as an enrichment teacher. I received my Bachelor of Teaching and my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Teaching from Michigan State University. My blood runs green as I am a Spartan fan!
When I'm not teaching I enjoy spending my time with my family. My husband and I enjoy golfing and are avid Disney fans. We have one son Michael who is a film editor. We also have two pugs, Kleeko a therapy dog, and Mando who shows in conformation and is newly grand championed dog.
I am looking forward to a fun and educational year!
