Other Information

Karen arrived at Trinity-Pawling School in 1998, following her husband Tom’s appointment to the English department. After spending her first year tutoring and working in the library, it was time to return to teaching, and the following year she was appointed to the English department. After six years of teaching seventh grade English in the middle school and sophomore English in the upper school, Karen began teaching full time in the Language Program in 2005. In  2012 she returned to the English department on a full time basis to teach sophomore and freshman level courses.

In addition to her academic contributions, Karen is actively involved with students outside of the classroom in her position as the Director of Student Activities. This encompasses planning events for the boys both on and off campus. Working in conjunction with other single-sex schools throughout the area, she helps coordinate the events that are held on a weekly basis. Whether it is a Saturday night dance or a Prep School Day at Six Flags, students are given the opportunity to socialize.

Karen enjoys a variety of outside interests, including reading, gardening, and travel. She resides in Arches 3 with her husband Tom and their golden retriever, Toby.

Not Just In the Classroom

What makes Trinity-Pawling unique? The Effort System is at the heart of everything we do.

The Pride

At Trinity-Pawling, every boy is a three-season athlete.  Whether he is learning the basics or has been excelling for years, he is part of the School's century-old athletic tradition.  T-P competes in the Founders' League, a highly competitive arena showcasing some of the nation's best prep school talent. T-P offers 13 interscholastic sports with 30 teams.

We're Seriously Creative

The Arts are an integral part of every Trinity-Pawling student's education. Whether they wish to develop existing talents or experiment with an entirely new form of expression, each student will have at least one year of music, theater, visual art or art history.


As a parent or guardian of a Trinity-Pawling student, you are a welcome member of the community. Your involvement through event attendance, participation in the Parents' Association, or simply staying connected is appreciated.

This could be you!

Over 100 years ago, Frederick Luther Gamage, Trinity-Pawling's Founding Headmaster, said, "Whether a boy succeeds or fails in the first instance at everything he tries is irrelevant.  The only boy who truly fails is the boy who fails to try."  Today, a century later, 315 boys live learn and grow together in an environment that fosters commitment, effort and character across the board.

As a convenience, Trinity-Pawling School links to Google Translation which provides an automated translation of our website. The tool is not perfect, and the context of the copy may not be precise when it is translated. As a result, sometimes the translation may lose some of its intended meaning. Therefore, Trinity-Pawling School cannot guarantee the accuracy of the converted text. Where there is any question, the English version is always the authoritative version of the website.
