Mr. Ron Garten

I recently moved back to where I grew up: Richlands. Before that I lived in Philadelphia and taught at a school there for over 6 years. I graduated from Richlands High School and earned my Bachelor's degree in English and Philosophy from West Chester University. I also have a Master's Degree in Library Science from Clarion University. Before moving to Philadelphia, I lived in Alaska as an Airman in the United States Air Force. 

This is my second year at OCLC and I am really enjoying working with the students and staff. Helping students achieve their goals is very important to me, and it is great to work in a place like OCLC. 

Some of my favorite hobbies include hiking, fishing, reading, kayaking, gardening and having a good time with my family.

I really look forward to getting to know all of the students at OCLC!
