Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Cara Dunbar


I graduated as valedictorian from Yoakum High School in 2007. I chose to attend Houston Baptist University after being offered a position on the volleyball team. I played volleyball my freshman year and cheered the following two years. I graduated with honors in December 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Pedagogy and Mathematical Studies.


My husband and I were married in January of 2011. Our son, Logan, was born in the fall of 2012 and our daughter, Emma, was born in February of this year. After living in Palacios for the past 4 ½ years, we decided to move closer to family so we are currently in the process of building in Edna. I enjoy playing outside with my babies and with all my nephews and my niece, running, and working outside in my yard (when I have one.)

Work Experience

This year will be my 5th year of teaching. My first year of teaching was at Travis Middle School in the fall of 2011 as a 7th grade math teacher. The following three years I worked at Palacios High School as a Geometry and Algebra 2 teacher. I am excited to be back at the junior high level this year!
