About Mrs. White
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year.  I am very excited about working with you and your child.

I am a graduate of the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University. and have began my teaching career at Twin Ridge Elementary.  While at Oakdale I have taught both 1st and 3rd grade.  I love being a part of the Oakdale community.  

I am a product of Frederick County public schools.  I attended Waverly Elementary, Thomas Johnson Junior High, and graduated from Frederick High School.  Both my husband and I grew up in Frederick so we decided to make it our home to raise our family.  We have two boys who keep us very busy.  Our oldest is a junior at Thomas Johnson High School where he is a member of the swim team and baseball team and was recently inducted into the National Honor Society.  Our youngest is in the magnet program at New Market Elementary and recently began playing the saxaphone.  When I am not busy with activities with my sons I enjoy reading and exercising.

I have high expectations for my students.  They are expected to complete classwork and homework, come to class prepared and ready to learn, and most importantly treat all others, be it the teacher or the student, with respect so that we can together create a caring classroom environment. Student agendas are to be signed nightly so we can keep in contact throughout the year.


It will be crucial that we work together and keep the lines of communication open as we partner to ensure success for your son or daughter.  You can contact me anytime at karyn.white@fcps.org or at 240-236-3328 and I will return your call as soon as possible.  I greatly value your insight and know that together we will have an excellent year. 

Thank you in advance for your support!
