Mrs. Janet Gabriel

Teacher

I have been teaching 8th grade science at Prairie View Middle School for the past 17 years. I love my job and what I do. I love making science come alive. I believe that if you love what you are doing you will be successful. I want my students to remember that science was one of their favorite classes.

I believe in children. I have four of my own. Two girls and two boys, ranging in age, from 30 to 24. All of  them have graduated from college. I also have been blessed with a granddaughter. So when I am not busy with school work, I am busy with my children and my granddaughter.
