Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Veronica Sammon
Welcome to Mrs. Sammon’s First Grade Class! I am excited to start my 14th year teaching and my 4th year as part of the Donald Family! I am a homegrown LISD girl having been in the district as a student in K-12, and as a teacher having taught life skills, dual language, and STEM. I earned my bachelors and masters degrees both from from UNT, and spent a semester teaching English in a small village in Mexico. That incredible experience confirmed my love of teaching. I serve as a district curriculum writer for language arts/social studies and each year, I love creating a classroom family and being part of all of the wonderful memories and moments in each child’s life.
I have been married to my husband Bryan for 9 years and in December 2020, we welcomed our beautiful baby girl, Nora. My newest hobby is finding matching mommy and me clothes, but I also enjoy scrapbooking, gymnastics, musicals, reading, and traveling. NYC, California, and Disney World top our travel list, but we'd love to explore Europe one day. Our family also has a fat cat named Chapman. I have been known to break into song, and the way into my heart is with a hot cup of queso, an iced coffee (the sweeter, the better!), and chocolate.
I am looking forward to an incredible year with my Dolphin family!
