Garrett Goss was raised in Stone Mountain, Georgia. He attended Decatur City Schools and after High School went to the Athens campus of Gainesville State College. While in Athens, Garrett was a drummer in a couple of different bands. Upon moving back to Atlanta, Garrett stretched his musical legs even further by joining several different bands until finding the right fit in his current band, Dot.s. Garrett started teaching in a Reggio-inspired school in 2009 and has grown each year as a student of the approach and as an educator in general. Garrett is in his 8th year as an early childhood educator, and he has worked with ages 1-5.
Garrett is grateful for the opportunity to do what he loves best, sharing his musical passions with his students. He began playing ukulele with his classes six years ago, and it has become a vital medium for expanding imagination through creativity. In the past, Garrett has really enjoyed composing and performing songs with his students! Garrett lives in Old Fourth Ward with his girlfriend and their dog, George. Being an Atlanta native, he is an avid fan of all of the city’s sports teams. He is extremely grateful and excited to be a part of The Nest Nursery School!
