Mrs. Karen Kleespies

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! This is my 16th year teaching Special Education and I am very excited to be starting my 13th year here at Webutuck.  I graduated from The College of Saint Rose in 2002 earing my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and then in 2004 I earned my Masters degree in Special Education and Literacy from Mount Saint Mary College. I returned to Webutuck Elementary School 4 years ago after spending several years in the intermediate building.  I love working in the elementary school and watching students becoming readers.

My husband and I live in Pleasant Valley with our 2 children and our dog.  We love playing outside together, having dance parties and rooting for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

I am looking forward to a great school year!  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (845) 373-4100 or karen.kleespies@webutuck.org.
