Mr. Michael Gilchrist (Mr. G)
I have been an elementary art teacher since 1991 and have been in Wake County since 1997. I attended UNCW and graduated from ECU. I grew up in Lillington, North Carolina and worked my first six years in Harnett County. I loved working in the same small rural community in which I had grown up. I moved to Raleigh to see if I could make it in “the big city” and have been here almost 20 years and love it. I currently live in North Raleigh and love to travel. I enjoyed 4 weeks in Australia in 2007 and 4 weeks across Europe in 2013. I have loved art since I was in elementary school and love creating an environment that balances learning about art and helping students find their own creative voice.
