I am deeply sorry for your loss, my condolences go out to Mrs. Gabel's family and friends , also to the teachers and children of Field School. Mrs. Gabel was my Daughter and Son's 1st grade teacher. Mrs Gabel was a very kind, thoughtful, patient teacher/person. Before school started she wrote letters to my kids introducing herself and every holiday she would send cards out . My kids had a hard time adjusting /transitioning from kindergarten to 1st grade, however Mrs Gabel made the process easier and my kids were comfortable after calming them down and reassuring that school was going to be just fine. Mrs Gabel...you will be missed. Thank you for making my kids 1st grade very memorable with your kind heart.
