Mrs. Karen McNamara

Hi! My name is Karen McNamara, and I have been teaching for 26 years. This will be my 6th year at White Oak Middle School and I am excited to be part of New Caney ISD. I teach 7th grade Texas history and Creative Writing 7th and 8th grade. I live in Kingwood with my husband, daughter, and our two dogs. My daughter is a graduate of Porter High School. Go Spartans! I am from New York City, and attended college at St. John's University. I graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Education with a minor in Social Studies/History. I am a certified Special Education teacher, EL teacher, and a Dyslexia specialist. I love reading and sharing my love of reading with students. I look forward to another amazing year here at White Oak Middle School!
