Jeff Garrett is a lover of words and the effect his writing has on his readers. He has been writing short stories and journals for his family since his creative writing days in college and has only recently realized that he had been essentially writing a blog all along. With this realization he started an actual blog at blogspot.com. This latest writing adventure is regularly enjoyed by approximately 2,500 people per month. He has written a satire blog and two travel blogs for short-term mission trips.
Jeff Garrett enjoys writing and is most comfortable making people laugh. His self-deprecating humor along with seemingly endless and original connections between various objects or situations makes for entertaining reading. Readers of Jeff¹s blog comment that random events and ordinary occurrences are transformed into an original humor that is happily unexpected. While humor is his comfort zone, Jeff enjoys the ability to make his readers think, smile, reminisce, laugh, or even cry. He has been a librarian for an elementary school in Newark California. He has taught special education for eleven years, kindergarten for 6 years, and is currently teaching 2nd grade. He has written several grant proposals that have been fully funded and single-handedly executed their implementations. He has been published in the Tri-City Voice.
Jeff Garrett earned an associate’s Degree in Natural Sciences from Ohlone College in Fremont California, A Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies from California State Hayward in Hayward California, and a Master’s Degree in Special Education from National University in Cupertino California.
When not writing, Jeff can be found teaching in Newark, CA, working with youth at his church, or traveling by camper across this great land of ours. He currently lives in his childhood home with his loving and understanding wife, two teenage children, and two chocolate labs. He is suspiciously curious as to whether the TV networks have secretly placed cameras inside his home to gather Sitcom material for their fall lineups. His latest material can be read in the blog titled, Do I Really Live in This Sitcom?

“It was a dark and stormy night…” will never be words written by me. (with the obvious exception of this resume) I have decided that I want to take a giant leap of faith and put myself out there to be judged by a large group of people. Never again will the phrase ‘send in your resume’ hold me back. While writing in the confines of an assignment, I am very good. While writing from deep within, I am even better. When challenged, I am amazing. I am also incredibly humble.”
