Mrs. Alicia Abel
Biology and Environmental Science Teacher
Hello students, parents, and guardians!
This is my 13th year as a science teacher, and my second year at Coconino High School. I am very glad that I chose this career! Before teaching at CHS, I taught high school science in Gilbert and Apache Junction, AZ. I have taught a variety of subjects, such as biology, ecology, agriculture, anatomy/physiology, and integrated science. Before that, I had many biology related jobs, such as a zookeeper, field researcher, veterinary technician, and animal care technician.
I received both my Masters degree in Education and my Bachelors degree in Biology from ASU. I also have an Associates degree in Welding from Mesa Community College.
Outside of school, most of my time is spent with my two daughters and my husband. When I have extra time, I like to read, watch movies, go camping, participate in a costuming charity group, build/make things, and play computer games. We have quite the collection of animals, including dogs, goats, ducks, geese, and a donkey!
