Welcome to Mrs. Abel's Class
    About Mrs. Abel

    Welcome to 2nd Grade!  I am very excited to be part of the 2nd Grade team at Buffalo Trail Elementary School.  My name is Shannon Abel.  I have been teaching for 15 years.  This is my 5th year at Buffalo Trail Elementary School. I have had the wonderful opportunity to work at Sugarland Elementary School in Loudoun County  for 10 years.  While at Sugarland, I taught Kindergarten, Second Grade and Third Grade.  Before I taught at Sugarland, I spent a couple of years working in private schools in Upper Marlboro, Maryland and in Farifax County. 

    I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from West Virginia University.  In December 2012,  I graduated from Shenandoah University with a masters degree as a reading specialist.  I have lived in Loudoun County for the past 12 years with my husband, Jeff.  Together we have two children; Kylee who is 8 and Karson who is 7.  Both of them attend Sycolin Creek Elementary in Leesburg. 
    I am really looking forward to working with and getting to know all of the wonderful families at Buffalo Trail.   We are going to have a great year!  Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at Shannon.Abel@lcps.org
