Mrs. Jennifer Gabriel
Hello! My name is Jen Gabriel, and I am blessed to be part of the Stuber Physical Education department this year! My family and I relocated to Texas two years ago, and I instantly fell in love with Prosper and especially Prosper ISD. After volunteering for a semester at Windsong Ranch Elementary, I was hired on as a SPED Resource instructional aide for Windsong. When Stuber opened up last year, I accepted the opportunity to transfer to Stuber as the PE aide.
This role resonates well with me, as my background is in athletics, Cross Country and Track and Field, in particular. I spent all of my high school and college years racing for my schools, and it has always been my secret hope to help coach one day, and do for the youth what had been done for me when I was first learning to be an athlete. Marriage and motherhood put me on a different path after I finished college, and I put my dream to coach aside. I married my favorite college cross country teammate, Chris, 19 years ago, and we are raising 3 daughters together. Now that all of our children are in school full-time, I have the freedom to pursue some of the dreams that I had put to rest for a few years.
All of this to say, that when I was presented with the opportunity to help coach PE at Stuber Elementary, all I could give was my wholehearted, "YES PLEASE!!!" I am excited! I am thankful! And if I can help impart to our students a greater love, knowledge and enthusiasm for health and fitness than they had before, then I will have done my job!
