Meet the Art Teacher!
Hi! My name is Karin Chmelo and this is my tenth year (WHOA!) as East Clayton Elementary's Art Teacher. I came to Johnston County Schools for the 2011 - 2012 school year and earned my stripes by winning Outstanding First Year Teacher of the Year for JCS. Each year I have worked hard to build upon my art curriculum and expand my methods of teaching. Over the years, I have had the drive to obtain more materials for our students and received several grants through the Johnston County Education Foundation and the Clayton Visual Arts Council. The supplies and resources obtained through these grants are priceless! How did I get to become an Art Teacher, you ask? Well, I graduated from East Carolina University in 2008 with a B.S in Interior Design. I later returned to ECU to obtain my K-12 Teaching License in Art Education. Last December, I also obtained my National Boards Teacher Certification! I have loved every minute of this career and look forward to many more years as ECES' Art Teacher!
