Andrew Garber image

I was born and raised in Corydon, Iowa graduating from Wayne Comm. High School in 1980. My father, Dr. Keith Garber M.D., practiced family medicine in Wayne County from 1961 to 2007. My mother, Ann Garber, trained and worked professionally as a laboratory technician before turning her long-time hobby of beekeeping into a business, Log Chain Apiary. I have two sisters and one brother. I currently live in Unionville with my wife, Tina. We have three children, Adriana is eighteen, Gabriel is nine, and Jasmine will be eight in December.

     I attended college at Indian Hills in Centerville for my Associates Degree. In 1984, I received my Bachelors Degree with honors from Friends University in Wichita with a major in biology and a minor in math. I also started on the basketball team all four of my undergraduate years in college. I took education courses at Graceland University in Lamoni, IA and have received both my Iowa and Missouri teaching licenses for General Science, Biology & Chemistry. In May, 2009 I completed my Masters Degree in Teaching Administration through William Woods University and just finished my Specialist Degree in May 2013.

     This will be my third year as a principal and my fifth year as the District Athletic Director. I spent seven years teaching science at Putnam County High School.  I have also coached for fourteen years and have many life experiences to draw upon as references for my educational career.
