Dear Parents: 

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Center Hill High School.  For those of you new to Center Hill - Welcome to the Hill!  I am partially new to Center Hill High and also worked at Center Hill Middle for one year.  

I believe that learning is about progress—not perfection—no matter the educational level of the student.  My teaching strategies are designed to engage students through differentiated instruction.  I firmly believe that teamwork builds a positive learning environment.  One of my goals for this school year will be to empower my students to become life-long learners. 

With over fourteen years of coaching experience, primarily in volleyball, at middle schools, high schools, and USAVolleyball clubs in the Memphis area, I have developed a strong desire to work with kids.  In addition to coaching volleyball, I also play and coach tennis. 

After graduating from Indiana University in Decision Sciences, I took my math and statistical degree into the business world with companies like IBM, NCR Corporation, and USA Group.  My work experience and responsibilities also included adult education.  Through my professional and coaching experience, my desire to teach in the classroom surfaced.  I am excited to be realizing my life-long ambition to teach middle and high school students. 

I am committed to your child’s education and development, and I look forward to getting to know you over the school year. 

Sincerely, Gayla Arvin
