Mrs. Karen Chirinos
Hi! My name is Karen Chirinos. This is my 18th year as a Special Educator at Beekman Elementary School.
I grew up in Fishkill and attended and graduated from the Wappingers Central School District. From Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics and received my Teaching Certification N-6, as well as my Masters degree in Elementary and Special Education.
I currently live in Pine Plains, located in upper Dutchess County with my husband Joe. We have a 13 year old son named Matthew and a 6 year old Yellow Lab named Winsor. He is the best dog ever!
In my free time, I enjoy spending time at the beach, reading, rooting for the Yankees and the Jets, and spending time with my family!
