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 for two and a half years.  I was born in Massachusetts and still have most family there as my parents are there, living in the beautiful state of New Hampshire.  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.  We finally settled in Florida after he retired from the military when he was offered a position at Kennedy Space Center.  I attended Florida State University where I received a Bachelors 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 three boys, Elliott, Everett, and Emmett!  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.
