Cara Varnell

Math Teacher


This is my eighth year to teach at Carlson, and I have taught in Fort Worth ISD for 14 years.  It has been a great joy working with children! They amaze me with their insight and creativity every day.  I enjoy making a creative learning environment for students where they will grow in confidence in their math skills. Originally, I lived in Atlanta, Georgia where most of my family still lives.  I consider myself a native of Fort Worth after living here for 23 years and love this city!  My husband’s name is Derrick, and we have three daughters, Natalie, age 19, Olivia, age 17, and Sophie, age 13. All of my children have had the privilege of attending Carlson, and I knew I wanted to belong to this community as a teacher.  My hobbies are gardening, shopping at antique and flea markets, decorating, reading, and being outside in nature.
