Karen Chapman, Principal

I am both proud and honored to introduce myself as the principal of Robious Elementary School. It gives me great pleasure to serve a school deeply rooted in the character traits we appreciate as, “The Robious Way”. As a school entrenched in the community for over 50 years, we have led with perseverance, collaboration, compassion, integrity, and a commitment to quality.

My career path and education prepared me for my current position. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Elizabeth City State University. I also received my Master’s Degree from North Carolina A&T State University. In 2006, I received my Education Specialist Degree from the University of Virginia in Administration and Supervision. Over the course of 20 years I have served as a 1st and 2nd grade classroom teacher, Administrative Resource Teacher, Gifted and Talented Instructional Coach, and Assistant Principal.

I am excited to take on this learning journey with you as we grow student learners to be a positive change in the world!
