Mr. Thomas Garrou
Welcome to Mr. Garrou's Class Website!!
If you are a student, I am looking forward to teaching you this semester. If you are a parent, I look forward to working with you in order to educate you child.
I am beginning my eighth year of teaching High School, and my Third at North Johnston High. Before working as a teacher, I was a Correctional Officer, a Fire Fighter, and Project Manager for a telecommnications company. I also worked at Wayne Community College as the Educational Support Technician for four years before moving to teaching, a job which I performed at WCC for three years. I am an 11-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force and AF Reserves, and saw a lot of operations during Desert Storm and Desert Shield. I have coached Wrestling, Track & Field, and Cross Country during my career so far as a high school teacher. Currently, I serve as the First Repsonder for the JV and Varsity Panther Football teams. My hobbies include reading, photography, playing the drums and the ukelele, martial arts, vacations to the beach and the mountains, and staying as active as I can. I really enjoy enriching the minds of my students and challenging them as student-athletes.
