Mr. Garrett Colburn

Hello, my name is Garrett Colburn and I am one of United States history teachers here at Cleveland High School. This is my first year at CHS and my third working for Johnston County Schools. I look forward to having a great year in a new school. 

I moved to Garner from the Hudson Valley region of NY (think mountains, forests and river valley) with my wife, and two young sons. I look forward to not snow-blowing or shoveling three feet of snow at a time this "winter." 

In my spare time, I like to focus on photography,  fixing cars, and playing some ice hockey.  

If you need anything, feel free to contact me using the "Contact Me" tab on the left hand side of the website. 


Have a great summer and keep on truckin'! 

Please check back in mid-August for updates.
