Mrs. Cara Sammons

Hello! I am Cara Sammons. I have been teaching at Donald Elementary since 2015. This is my 14th year in special education. I previously taught in a Special Ed position at MHS for 7 years.

I am excited to be working with all my students this year and to see how much growth they show. I have a passion for helping students realize their own potential and greatness. I will also be the special ed. team lead this year. 

I grew up in the LISD district and actually attended Donald for K and 1st grade until I got re-zoned to Garden Ridge. I graduated from FMHS in 2003 and graduated college from UNT in 2007. I have two little boys; Peyton (11) and Eli (7). I also have 4 dogs!! I am sucker for animals
