Mrs. Cara Garrett

Hello!  My name is Mrs. Garrett and I am the Dean of Students at Astoria Park Elementary School!  I was a middle school Civics, Math and AVID teacher at Fort Braden for the six years prior to becoming a Panther!  Prior to moving to Tallahassee, I lived on the east coast of Florida in Brevard County, where I taught high school social studies.  I was born in Massachusetts and spent most of my adolescent years in the northeast United States.  I was fortunate to travel and live all over the country and the world due to my Dad's 21 years of service in the United States Air Force. I attended Florida State University where I received a Bachelor of Arts in History and Religion.  I most recently completed my Masters of Education in Educational Leadership from Saint Leo University.  I am married to my college sweetheart, TJ, and we have four boys, Elliott, Everett, Emmett and Ethan!  We love to attend Florida State soccer games together and are huge sports enthusiasts.  Every weekend you can guarantee either soccer, golf, NASCAR, football or baseball is on our television.  In my downtime I like to read, workout and run.
