Mr. Ryan M. Garbin
Welcome to West Virginia History! I am Ryan Garbin and I am the current 8th grade History teacher at Follansbee Middle School. This is my 4th year at FMS and my 6th year overall being a teacher. I earned my educational degree at The Pennsylvaina State University and I am currently in the process of obtaining my Administration degree at Franciscan Univeristy. My class strictly focuses on the history of the state of West Virginia. We learn everything from the first inhabitants to live in our region to the current economy and government of the state. Students also participate in the annual Golden Horseshoe competiton in 8th grade which tests students knowledge on West Virginia history. Winners get to tour the state Capitol and have lunch at the govenor's mansion! It is a very exciting year for students and I look forward to helping everyone along the way!
