Hello, I am Derrick James Garner aka Mr. Garner or Mr. G. I teach 7th Grade Individuals and Societies. I grew up in Europe and Canada before moving to the United States when I was 15. I graduated from Eaglecrest High School in Colorado. I attended MSU Denver where I obtained my bachelor's degree in History with a minor in Philosophy. I then obtained my teaching education and license from MSU Denver School of Education.
In class we will explore many historical individuals and societies from the beginning of time until about the 1500s CE focusing on the Eastern Hemisphere. Students will learn about important historical locations, events, people, milestones, as well as important geographic and economic skills. I also help with the OASIS hiking club here at Century.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy camping and hiking in nature, watching movies and shows, listening to music, playing video games, writing short stories and poetry, painting, biking, and of course exploring anything education, philosophy, or history based.
I am so excited to be teaching at Century Middle School, and I look forward to learning and growing with you this year. Let's make this school year a great one. Go Comets and may the Force be with you!
