Mark McAbee / 6th Grade

 
Welcome Redding STEM parents. My name is Mark McAbee and I am excited to be your child's 6th grade teacher this year. 
 
A little bit about myself; I enjoy music, the outdoors, spending time with my wife and our two children. I spend my free time on the lake, hiking, traveling and enjoying all of the bounty this amazing world has to offer. 
 
I was a professional musician before changing careers and I incorporate music anywhere a lesson will allow. I graduated from Simpson University with a BA in liberal studies and Ca. multiple subject teaching credential and thoroughly believe that education is the cornerstone to a productive society.
 
I believe in teaching leadership skill for both inside and outside the classroom. I encourage students to be life long learners and teach them to do their best, work hard, show respect and model good character for/towards their peers. I have an open door policy for our class and encourage all parent/guardians to stop by anytime to see the fun and exciting things we will be learning this year.
 
I look forward to meeting everyone!
 
Sincerely,
 
Mr. Mark McAbee 
6th Grade Teacher
