Mrs. Karen Chirinos

Hello! My name is Karen Chirinos.  This is my 15th year as a Special Educator at Beekman Elementary School. 

I grew up in Fishkill and attended the Wappingers Central School District.  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 from Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh.  

I live in Pine Plains with my husband Joe.  We have a 10 year old son named Matthew and a 3 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.

Mrs. Kim Predatsch

Hi! My name is Kim Predatsch. Who??? Yes, many of you know me as Ms. Paesano.  I did get married last year, so my new married name is Mrs. Predatsch.  I grew up in Orange County, and have lived in Dutchess County for the past 30 years.   In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, being outdoors, and playing pickleball.

I received my Bachelor's degree from SUNY Albany and my Master's degree from SUNY New Paltz.   I achieved National Board Certification in Generalist, Early Childhood.   I am looking forward to my 16th year teaching in the Arlington School District.
