Mr. Rick Abel

I have spent most of my life at school. This will be my 45th year as a public school educator. I have served as a teacher, principal, athletic director and coach in 4 states, 7 school districts, and 11 schools in the Western United States. I have enjoyed each of the positions I have held in this district over the last 14 years. Most importantly, I am the proud father of a MHS graduate.

I believe that education is the foundation for success. As an educator I play a small role in providing students with the opportunity to grow and achieve their individual goals. I have the privilege of working with families, educational professionals and our community as we all work to provide the foundation for each student to succeed. As I have told my daughter time and time again, my expectations are that each of us needs to work hard, be good and have a little fun.
