Degrees and Certifications:
I am Mr. Garrett and I am teaching 8th Grade Science virtually through Aiken Innovate this year. I have previously taught in the Charleston County School District and the Richland One School District. Prior to becoming an educator, I worked with the Department of Health and Environmental Control for 11 years.
I am a graduate of South Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I am proud father of four children. T I am a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated. I am a fan of the New England Patriots, Boston Celtics, Boston Red Sox, South Carolina Gamecocks, and SCSU Bulldogs.
I look forward to working with students and parents as we venture forth in this "new normal", knowing that although how we present learning has changed, the processes and expectations of learning remain the same as we work together to prepare our students to become successful contributors to our society.
As partners, I share the responsibility for your child's success and want you to know that I will do my very best to carry out my duties and responsibilities to you and your student.
My Motto: Failure is not an option, and ALL students are destined for greatness.
