Hi my name is Kara Abel and I am Alaskan born and raised! I am married and have a beautiful family of 3 children , 7, 5, and 3. We enjoy spending time outside, raising animals, and having fun. I am a 3rd year teacher at Nikiski Middle High School where I was a 2007 graduate. I teach math and science here. I love working in this community and I have the most fun when I’m getting kids to explore different ideas or go outside!
PL Strategy to share:
I am currently really getting into using data to drive my instruction. I’m excited to continue to use this in my math classrooms in particular.
Current Driving Question:
A driving question I have is how to excite kids about math. I am investigating the book called Mathematical Mindsets for help on this.
