Hello, I am Mr. Garvey and I welcome you to my class(es). I have been teaching since 2001 and have been teaching mathematics at Havelock High School since 2005. My first career was not teaching, it was serving our great country as a United States Marine. Upon my retirement from the Marine Corps, I attended the University of West Florida (UWF) and received my degree in teaching. While teaching at HHS, I have coached women's JV soccer and was the head coach for the cross country teams.
I am happily married to a wonderful woman, who has also served our country and is retired from the United States Navy. I have three children, a son and two daughters. I am not a true North Carolinian, so I don't follow any sport teams from here; I am though a die hard Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan. As for hobbies, I am outdoors person; I like to horseback ride and camp.
Now that you know a little about me I look forward to getting to you as the semester goes by.
