Welcome to Mrs. Abel's ClassAbout 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.
