Ms. Karolyn Nelms

My name is Karolyn Nelms and I'm so excited to begin another amazing year with Community ISD! I am teaching 3rd grade Math & Science at McClendon Elementary. This year marks my 7th year in education and the fifth with the district. I previously taught fourth grade at Birdville ISD in northern Fort Worth. I believe that every student deserves the chance to receive a high-quality education in a safe, comfortable and fun environment. My goal is to inspire self-discovery and a passion for learning in every student. 

I am also a proud graduate of Community High School (class of 2008). My family moved out to the district when I began seventh grade and I enjoyed six awesome years as a Brave at Community Middle School (Edge) and Community High School. Once a Brave, Always a Brave!

I live in nearby Josephine, Tx. I have two dogs, Lucy (a chihuahua), and Ricky (a miniature pinscher). When I'm not at school I enjoy going to Crossfit Lavon, watching movies, and spending time with my family.

My conference time is from 1:45-2:45 PM Monday - Thursday. The best way to contact me is through email and I normally respond at the end of my teaching day or during my conference.
