Coach Garner

Instilling the importance of social studies in the world around us is by far one of my greatest passions. I strive in everything that we do in class, in the history club or in day to day conversations to bring history alive in a manner that excites others about history. My family and I travel quite extensively, embracing both World and United States History. It is my personal philosophy that you can understand the history of a place or event so much better when physically standing at that place. Check out some of the places I have visited over the years when trying to connect more with the history around us.
