Fred Abel, Principal

   I have been a teacher or administrator for Van Buren Public Schools since 2001.

   I am married to Marci, who is a Spanish teacher.  We met while we were undergraduates at Western Michigan University, where we both earned our teaching degrees.  We have two children; Cooper, a freshman at Michigan Tech and Madison, a junior in high school.

   I love baseball and I have coached at both North and South.  I am a huge Detroit Tiger fan.  I love to read, go to the movies, and eat cheeseburgers.


    I am excited about being the principal at Edgemont. I am lucky to be a part of such a great community of learners!
