A Quick Bio About Me!


My daughters on their 1st day of high school! They are fraternal twins!

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!
