Mr. Garman is a saint! Coming in as Freshman none of us have any of our shit together and Mr. Garman will teach you how to! do! that! He lays out all of the information so that it's super easy to understand and you will thank him forever! He is tough if you deserve it but if you do the work (which honestly isn't that hard) then he's real nice and will have cool conversations with you.

I loved Mr. Garman!!! He is definitely one of the best teachers I've ever had. Before his class, history was only my favorite subject by default. Now it's my favorite subject because I realized that history is so exciting! He made me fall in love history. I just wish he didn't only teach ninth grade; I would love to have him as a teacher now!

he's nice, REALLY easy class, but getting him sophomore year screws you over for junior year, you develop a very lazy work ethic in his class

very easy teacher, very nice guy, but kind of uptight and painfully uncool. overall, I'd say he's alright. his class is pretty vanilla and I didn't learn much but he's mostly a good guy

Great teacher who is creative and fair. Adheres to rules a little too strongly. Lacks a certain amount of finesse, which if he had it, would make him one of the best teachers in the school.

Strict, but a good teacher. As athletic director, he does his best, and though you may not like his decisions, that doesn't make him a bad guy.
