Welcome to Mr. Annel’s  6th grade Math classroom; room 8! This is my 16th year of teaching in district 117. I am very excited to have your child in my classroom. My classroom is always a warm and friendly place for you and your child. You are always welcome here. I received my bachelors degree from Knox College and my master's degree in School Leadership from the University of Olivet Nazarene. I am a father of 2 children. I have a daughter who will be 13 in October and a son who will be 11 in November. My wife is also a teacher. She teaches Health/PE at Reavis High School. Throughout the school year I hope to provide your children with the support, encouragement, enthusiasm, and resources in order to grow and promote life-long learning.
