Fourth Grade

Rainey Karlson

Education: University of North Texas

Experience: I started teaching way back in 1999 for Grapevine-Colleyville ISD. In my sixteen years there I taught kindergarten, second and third grade. I have been with Fort Worth ISD, at Lily B. Clayton, since 2017.

Bio: I am a native Texan and have lived around the Metroplex area all my life, but graduated from Martin High School in Arlington.

I absolutely love being a teacher and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Working with students and being able to watch their learning evolve is an amazing thing to witness, and I feel blessed to be able to be there in those everyday moments.

Hobbies: When I’m not at school I love visiting the zoo, museums, and going to outdoor festivals. I also enjoy going out and discovering new things!


Education: TCU Elementary/ Special Ed.

Experience: I have been in education for twenty years. Fourteen of those years were spent teaching first and second graders.

Bio: I was so excited to come to Lily B. Clayton because I did my student teaching here! I love working with elementary school age children because no two days are ever the same. When I'm not at school, I'm busy with my own two daughters, my husband, and my two crazy dogs.

Experience: This is currently my 13th year of teaching and my first at Lily B. I recently moved to Fort Worth from Mesquite TX (where I worked the last 6 years) and before then, taught 6 years in Dallas. I have worked in every grade level from Pre K to Fourth.

Bio: I was born and raised on the island of Puerto Rico but spent a few years between Florida and Connecticut growing up. I didn't arrive in Fort Worth until recently but got here as fast as I could. I recently moved with my husband, 2 dogs and my daughter who is currently a second grader. I enjoy music and reading. Teaching and spending my days with children is my favorite thing in the world and I feel so honored to be a part of such a great school.

Hobbies: Traveling, listening to all sorts of different types of music. Spending time with family and friends. Reading books and being involved at our church.
