    Mrs. Beth Abel

    Dear Learners and Parents,

    I am delighted that we will be a team!  As a passionate educator for the last 34 years, I am just as ecstatic about this year as I was the first year I began teaching!  I love teaching and my passion is for the learners in my class to be engaged and discover not only new learning, but more about themselves and their capability to excel.  Thank you for sharing your child with me. 


    I have taught in both Citrus and Marion Counties, at the elementary and secondary levels.  I graduated from the University of Florida (Go, Gators!) with a Bachelor's Degree in Education and a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership.  My son currently attends my alma mater while my daughter works full time.  Outside of my busy work schedule, I enjoy swimming, biking, hiking and running the hills with my husband. 


    Parents, I want to stay in contact with you.  Feel free to contact me by email at beth.abel@marion.k12.fl.us or by calling the school number, which is 352-671-6120.  Please make sure I have a working email for you as many parents have requested that is the best form of communication for them.  It also seems to be most the most efficient for me as well, since I am in class teaching most of the day.  


    Office hours: 8:10-3:55 

    I will be answering emails from 8:10-8:50 and then from 3:55-4:00.  The rest of the time I will be in the classroom with learners.

    I will do my best to answer your emails as promptly as possible, and you should expect a response within 24 hours.
