    A.R. Johnson Counseling Department


    My name is Emily Kelm and I am the counselor for grades 6 through 9 at A. R. Johnson. 

    I am an alumni of Indiana University, where I received an M.S.Ed. in Counseling in 2019.

    Before I became a counselor, I received a B.A. in creative writing from Columbia College Chicago.


    I am a third generation educator with over a century of family history in the Richmond County School System.

    For this reason, I am especially proud to be serving you and your family at A. R. Johnson.


    Outside of counseling, I enjoy writing and playing music, sound engineering, and writing short stories.

    I have been heavily involved in the local art and music scene since 2003.

    I love history, space exploration, video games, and my dog, Laika.

    (The quickest way to contact me is by email. I will be responding to emails all summer long!)
