Mr. Garry Laws

Hi, my name is Mr. Garry Laws and I am very proud to be your child's math teacher. I am a North Carolina native and a retired United States Marine. I served my country proudly for approximately 28.5 years and decided to take up the rewarding challenge of teaching.

My most favorite things to do is ride my HD motorcycle, grill outside, and play with my dog Scrappy and Sheba. I am blessed with a supportive wife and family of four young adults. I considered it an extreme privilege to have a second career in education.

My overall goal is to teach all my students to enjoy math, enhance their 21st Century technology capabilities, and develop critical thinking skills to solve math problems in real life scenarios.
