Meet the PRINCIPAL
Melanie Teemant

Welcome Bobcat Families!

 

My name is Melanie Teemant and I am the proud

principal of this amazing school. This will be my 4th

year serving the Garrett community, and I can honestly tell you that I have been in awe of the dedication in our faculty and staff, and equally as impressed with the enthusiasm of the students and their families. 

Garrett Junior High School is extremely proud of the hard work and dedication our students and staff have accomplished to make this happen. We certainly credit our achievements to all stake-holders, including parents, as it is the positive relationships and shared vision for students that ensure our continued success.  Student achievement is a priority at Garrett JHS, and we believe it is essential for our students to develop the skills necessary to succeed not only in middle school, but also in life. 

 

Our core values are Respect, Responsibility, and Integrity. It is expected that all members of the Garrett JHS community demonstrate these core values at all times. Each teacher, staff member, student, parent, and community member, will develop and practice these core values in their interactions on this campus. Students will be working hard this year to build their tenacity and practice resilience, as we return to the building as a school family. The vast majority of our students have a long track record of academic success.  With this in mind, we want our students to understand that experiencing failure and adversity can positively contribute to growth and increase tenacity, which encourages continued success.  Additionally, this allows for long term attainment of goals. This will build the grit necessary to overcome obstacles and develop perseverance in all things. Together, we will positively impact our students and effectively prepare them for a very successful future!​

 

Engaging instruction and innovative curriculum are the heart of effective teaching at Garrett JHS, and dedicated teachers are determined to share their passion of teaching as we embark on this new school year. Together, we will work as a team and develop a partnership to prepare our students to succeed in life, but not just in school. Success in school is definitely important, but it’s only the beginning of the learning process. An important part of preparing for success in the real world is developing and building resilience during challenging times, having tenacity to push through difficult circumstances, and perseverance to weather the storms in life. Our children are our most precious resource and together we must prepare them for their world. 

Join me in supporting your child to blossom as they learn and grow at Garrett JHS. Please feel free to reach out and chat throughout the year about your ideas, your child, or how we can partner in this journey.

Your partner in education,

Melanie Teemant

Meet the ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL
Brian Todd

Dear Bobcat Family,

 

With a career deeply rooted in education, I have dedicated my professional life to nurturing young minds and fostering academic growth. My journey began as an elementary school teacher, where I discovered my passion for teaching and shaping children's educational experiences. Building on this foundation, I transitioned into a role as an instructional coach at Clark County School District (CCSD). There, I honed my skills in guiding educators and implementing effective instructional strategies. 

 

 Seeking to broaden my impact, I ventured into educational administration, first at the elementary level and then in middle school, both in Nye County. These experiences enriched my understanding of the multifaceted nature of school leadership and the critical role of administrators in shaping school culture and student success. 

 

 Now, as I embark on a new chapter, I am thrilled to be joining the Garrett family. I bring a wealth of experience and a deep commitment to educational excellence. I look forward to contributing to and learning from this dynamic community, and I am excited about the opportunities in this new role.

 

Mr. Brian Todd

 

Sincerely,

Jen Adams

Assistant Principal

Garrett JHS
