Mrs. Spannagel

Mrs. SpannagelMrs. Barb Spannagel is one of our Physical Education coaches at Mabry. She is also the PE Coordinator. Mrs. Spannagel was the Mabry Teacher of the Year in 2000 - 2001 and Cobb County's middle school physical education teacher of the year in 2001. She graduated from a small, private college in South Carolina which practically no one has ever heard of, Coker College. She has been teaching in public schools in Cobb County since 1987 and has been at Mabry for the last 17 years.

Mrs. Spannagel loves to travel (and since her husband is a commercial pilot, they get to do that rather often). She reads voraciously, likes to garden and is into sports with an emphasis on tennis. A little-know fact about Mrs. Spannagel: when she was in the 6th grade, the Russian Ballet (Bolshoi Ballet Company) came to Washington, D.C. where she was living, to do a winter performance of the Nutcracker. Since the Russian children were back home in school during that season, they auditioned local children to perform the children's parts of the ballet. Mrs. Spannagel was selected to join with the Bolshoi, but the costume for the part she was to play didn't fit her because she was too tall. So, she missed out on her chance for stardom.

The Spannagels have two grown daughters, one of whom recently made Mrs. Spannagel a grandmother. Morgan is four months old as of this writing and is changing weekly.
