Welcome to Art!
My name is Cari Smolarczyk.
I am proud to say that this is my 19th year teaching in Berwyn North District 98. Along my journey, I have enjoyed teaching in a variety of grade levels, including kindergarten, first grade, second grade, and fourth grade. This is my 9th year as the art teacher at Jefferson Elementary.
I received my elementary education degree in 1999 from Loyola University. I earned my master's degree in Special Education in 2017 from Saint Xavier University.
On a personal side, I have been married for 13 years and have eight year old twins. My family enjoys traveling, attending sporting events, and attending musicals.
For all who travel through the art room; students, parents, teachers, visitors, and administrators, I hope you find it to be a vibrant learning environment, in which all are embraced for the unique gifts that they bring to our world.
