Hi everyone, my name is Karen Cronin. I live in North Brunswick. I am married and mother to twin daughters who just started high school this week! I am happy and sad about this!
I am originally from Dumont which is in Bergen County. I was a Douglass College student after graduating from high school in the VERY early 1980’s but decided to leave before graduating to enter the working world. I came back to Rutgers four years ago to finish my BA in English and minor in Women’s & Gender Studies and will be graduating this December. Finally! I am hoping to work in a library because I love reading and believe literacy is so important! I have been a substitute teacher for 8 years and am trained as a tutor for Literacy Programs of New Jersey.
I have been a Springsteen fan for over 30 years! I hope everyone knows who that is! I was able to see him 3 times in NJ last year. I am not a big TV watcher but do love Downton Abbey. I love reading and anything creative and crafty. I love Pinterest and food and home decorating blogs. I spend most of my summers at the beach, except for this summer. My beach house was damaged during Sandy so we have torn it down & are in the midst of plans to build a new one. We had intended to build a new house anyway, so we are just doing it a little sooner than we thought. Our new house should be ready next summer & it will be storm proof, I hope!
