Hello, I am Derrick James Garner aka Mr. Garner or Mr. G. I teach 6th and 7th Grade Individuals and Societies. I have been teaching since 2019. I also help with the Century OASIS Hiking Club.
I come from an Air Force family. 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 and Secondary Education.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy biking, travelling, camping and hiking, watching movies and shows, listening to music and podcasts, playing video games, writing short stories and poetry, 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!
