Mrs. Karyn Claire Rode
  • In 2016, I graduated with highest honors earning a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Schreiner University in Kerrville, Texas. While there, I also played tennis for four years earning many athletic achievements and even a spot on the giant mural in the gym! During student teaching, I earned state recognition and honors through TDFE. I also received my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2017 from the same university. I have lived and grown up all over this beautiful state. I finally settled down in Fredericksburg where I met my wonderful husband, Landon. We have a chubby, grey tabby "daughter" named Penelope who we just spoil rotten. Together, we love to travel, eat buffalo wings, go hunting and fishing, and spend time with our friends and family.

    In addition to teaching 3rd grade, I coach Boys and Girls 7th/8th grade tennis at Fredericksburg Middle School. After playing for 14 years, I am blessed to share my fiery passion and competitive nature with my athletes and even some former dragons and unicorns!

    Fun Fact: My husband and I are FAMOUS for our love of buffalo wings and are even featured on their national website! Click here to see who pops up first!
