Mrs. Karen Chirinos

Hi!  My name is Karen Chirinos.  This is my 19th 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 14 year old son named Matthew and a 7 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!
