The best teacher I have ever had... He was a mentor with a genuine heart for knowledge and getting to know his students on a personal level. My life was truly impacted for the better because of this man.
I loved this guy. When I first came to Anoka in '09 and didn't know a single person in the building, he was very nice to me and gave me a nickname that I really, really like, haha. I haven't been back to AHS in a couple of years and I really miss him. :/ He taught honors English for freshmen, which I did excellent in. Great guy.
I had Mr. Garvey back in 1999 and he is STILL one of my favorite teachers EVER!! He looks a bit like Richard Gere which doesn't hurt either :)
Mr. Garvey is the best teacher I ever had! He taught my Debate class and I learned a lot from him. He also genuinely cares about his students!
Garvey has always been really helpful and wanted his students to succeed. I wouldn't have been able to try nearly as hard as I did if he wasn't.
An extremely helpful teacher that made learning fun. He also taught us the most difficult topics with ease. He's also very easy on the eyes, which doesn't hurt either!
Engaging, cares about his students, and wants to see them succeed.
LOVED this guy's class! he made learning fun and inspired me to want to be an english teacher; though i'm not, i DO use the skills learned in his class every day as a copy editor. best teacher ever!
Philosophical and very engaging. He has a doctorate degree in education, and teaches a masters class at St. Thomas University.
