 James L Garrison

James L GarrisonChaparral High School

James Garrison explained that he saw his students at Chaparral High School wearing nice jeans and carrying fancy phones but complaining that they could not stay organized because they did not have the proper tools or agendas to keep track of their assignments. James decided to change that. He was granted 165 spiral notebooks and 330 #2 pencils. With these supplies, James will work with his students to get them to keep track of their schedules and assignments. He says all they need is a pencil and place to write. You go James!
