Staff Profile: Mr. Garvin - Coach Q.

Mr. Garvin, or Coach Quincy, was the new substitute teacher at Rosemont this year. He substituted for Special Education, and is the new basketball coach. He was born and raised in Buffalo, New York, and went to Jamestown Community College on a scholarship. He was on his way to become a defense attorney, but wanted to help people with special needs, so he changed his major. Coach Quincy has an older brother that had special needs while growing up, so Mr. Garvin helped him a lot through his challenges and helped prepare him for the future. This when he realized that this was what he really wanted to do for his major.

Mr. Garvin previously used to work at Wilson Middle School as the assistant basketball coach, but is now the main coach here at Rosemont. He became a basketball coach because he “believes in each and every one of the players.” He adds, “It’s more than basketball, it’s preparing them for success in the future, teaching them respect, kindness, dedication, stimulation and positivity.” During the second game of the season, everyone thought the RMS boys basketball team was going to lose, but with that positive attitude, they won the game. Basketball was something that he played a lot while growing up, which is why he is so passionate about coaching his team.

“I just enjoy, like, things just come to me, I just do it.” He has music going for him, too–Mr. Garvin can sing, and has had his music on the radio before. He performs R&B/Pop/Soul as a songwriter and recorder. He’s had several hit songs on the radio across the nation, such as “We Obey The Rules” and “Be My Girlfriend.” He’s also played many roles in movies and shows, like NCIS. That job landed him a spot at the Emmys. It took time, dedication and lots of inspiration to get Mr. Garvin where he is today. “Being in NCIS opened many amazing doors for me. With that said, at that very moment I taught myself to always take chances and opportunities because we never know what’s best for us and for our lives and family! I’m not afraid to take chances and sacrifice.”
