Marshall Wood—2008

Marshall  Wood (Lynn)

319 E. 52d St. Savannah, GA 31405


I graduated from Vanderbilt University and married Lynn Gaarden from Kensington, Maryland in 1967. Graduated from Emory University School of Law in Atlanta and moved to Savannah in 1970 to practice law from 1970 to 2001.

Began part time teaching at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah in 1996, which led to full time position at Savannah Christian Preparatory School in 2001, teaching a variety of subjects (primarily American government), and coaching girls basketball and now cross country and track. This teaching experience is wonderful! I get more job satisfaction in one day at school than I got in a month during the last years of law practice.

Lynn is a school nurse at a Montessori public school in Savannah. She received her BS degree in nursing from Vandy, which is where we met.

Lynn and I have two children, Jeff in Seattle, with two granddaughters, and Sarah living in Atlanta.

We have been long time members of a Lutheran church in Savannah. We live in mid-town Savannah in the same house for 35 years.

School memories: Most memorable teacher for me-Byron Boyer. What a sport! Happy Trig Parties and other reasons for parties, and keeping a "Spartan atmosphere" in the room by keeping the temperature at about 60 degrees!

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
