Mrs. Karen McQuinn
Hello! My name is Karen McQuinn. I am originally born and raised in Chicago, Illinois and moved to the Bay Area after completing my BS and teaching credential in elementary education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After teaching 2 years with CUSD, I took a leave of absence to complete my masters degree at UCLA in Educational Psychology. After graduating, I returned to the district and have been teaching at Lincoln Elementary School ever since.
