Ms. Kara Penn
I have worked as a professional educator since 2012. I began my teaching career in Lexington School District Five teaching Art at Harbison West Elementary school. After four years of teaching elementary, I moved on to teaching 7th and 8th grade Art at Chapin Middle School. This will be my fifth year at Chapin Middle. I love learning about and teaching art! I want to teach all of my students everything I know about the world of art.
I grew up in Irmo, SC and graduated from our very own Dutch Fork High School! After graduation, I moved to Columbia, SC to study Art Education at the University of South Carolina. I am certified in Art Education with a concentration in photography and ceramics.
Outside of school, I enjoy photography, traveling, mountain biking, and spending time with my family.
