• Hello and welcome to my second grade class!  My name is Karen McNerney, and this is my seventeenth year teaching at Strathmore School.   I went through Matawan-Aberdeen schools as a child and graduated from Matawan-Regional High School in 2002.  I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and English from Monmouth University in 2006 and my Master's Degree in English from Monmouth University in 2009.  I was fortunate enough to do my student teaching here at Strathmore in first grade with Mrs. Burden.   I was so lucky to be able to begin my career here the following September! 
    Now I live in Middletown with my husband, Drew (Mr. McNerney); our son, Finn; our daughter, Darcy; our 2 cats - Batman and Audrey; and our dog, Clover!  When I'm not in school, I enjoy horseback riding, reading, and spending lots of time at the beach!
