Degrees and Certifications:

Garret Woods

I was raised in Summerville, SC.  I moved to Raleigh in 2010 when I worked for a Dallas-based logistics company.  I spent a few years in other industries before starting my teaching career in 2019.  I started in an eighth-grade class as a long-term science substitute.

I enjoyed teaching science.  I was recruited toward CTE though and really loved teaching a series of Technology, Engineering & Design courses in Wake county as I completed the ‘lateral entry’.  I earned an educator prep certificate from NCSU’s college of education in 2021.

When I’m not teaching, I’m reading about or trying new things.  I love to go on adventures(small and large) with my wife and 2-year-old son.  My favorite adventures usually involve being on a river.
