Mrs. Cindy Abel

My name is Cindy Abel and I have the privilege of being your child’s fourth grade gifted teacher. Although, this is my seventh year teaching gifted at RC Hill; I have an additional fifteen years teaching experience at the elementary school level. I have an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from the University of Illinois at Chicago and a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from National Louis University, along with 30 hours of continuing education classes in technology and the teaching of gifted children through St. Francis University. I am a life-long learner who believes that learning should be fun. 

My classroom is a very safe and open place for your child to learn and grow. I can assure you that this school year will be a positive and rewarding experience for them.

I have planned a variety of activities and celebrations that will add to the curriculum and make this school year a success and fun for your child!  The best time to reach me by phone is before or after school. The R C Hill Elementary phone number is 886-4343. In most instances, if you should email me, I am able to give you a more immediate response. My email address is:

Thank you for the time and the wonderful child that you are sending my way.
