Ms. Tomi Garner
I was born and raised into a family of educators. I went to college in pursuit of a degree in the biomedical field, but changed my major during my second year. I love the career path that I have chosen because I am constantly learning and evolving. My students take me on a new adventure each day. As the years progress, I hope to continue learning new and innovative ways to educate my students.
I began teaching in 2006. I have taught 7th grade science, 8th grade science, and Medical Detectives (Project Lead The Way). I will be teaching Design & Modeling (Project Lead The Way), STEM, and CodeSpace this school year. I have been awarded Liberty Middle School's Teacher of the Year (2015-2016), Madison City's Secondary Teacher of the Year (2016-2017), the Alabama District VIII Secondary Teacher of the Year (2017-2018), was inducted into the Jacksonville Teacher Hall Of Fame (2017), and my students have won the Garver Chain Reaction Challenge (2019). In addtion to teaching, I coached for 13 years where my teams consistently placed nationally in the top 10, winning national titles three years in a row.
