Superior Substitutes

Substitutes come in and out of Garner every day. Commonly these are Mrs. Markey, Mrs. Herlich, Mr. Poe, Mr. Dusek, Mrs. Flakes, and many more. Many students have their favorites like Karen Garcia (7) who says her favorite is Mrs. Flakes, “because she’s got that swag.”  Other students don’t really care who their substitutes are. Some subs are nice, meanwhile others are strict. Mrs. Kelly is a former Garner teacher who taught 6th grade Social Studies on the Astros team. Mrs. Markey used to be an administrator, and has a 7th grade son named Mitchell. Mrs. Herlich also has a son here at Garner named Ryan. Mr. Vigliante (aka, Mr. V) and Mr. Poe are veterans. (Mr. V shown subbing on veterans day in Mrs. Hamptons 5th period class.) Sometimes substitutes give students “prizes” so that they behave in class. 7th grader Ian Gonzalez says he likes Mr.  Dusek  because “he keeps control of the class while making class fun.”
