Mrs. Terry's Supply Lists (Spring 2020)

The $5 yearly math fee will be waived this year because students will need to provide their own supplies. Generally, those supplies are purchased with the $5 fee and shared in class. To provide the greatest level of protection, students are being asked to provide their own supplies. The same supplies may be requested by other teachers. There is no need to purchase two sets, as students will be responsible for keeping their own supplies this year. One set of supplies should be sufficient for all courses unless specifically stated by the teacher. If there are any questions or concerns about these supplies, please e-mail me with the contact form above.

Center Hill Math Department Calculator Recommendations

**Note: Each teacher possesses a classroom set of TI-84 Plus graphing calculators. Teachers will make every effort to ensure calculators are disinfected and shared as little as possible, but please note that calculators are used by students in every class, meaning up to four students per day may be using one calculator. If you feel more comfortable providing a calculator for personal use, your student will need, at minimum, a scientific calculator for high school. Below are recommendations with associated pros and cons. These recommendations will get your student the most bang for the buck, but are in no way the only available calculators for use in school. Please contact your teacher for specific questions about his or her class.

Bio

Hello and welcome to my website!! I am excited to teach your child and look forward to working with you throughout his or her education.


I would like to tell you a little about myself. I am a graduate of Independence High School (1998). I hold an Associates Degree in Computer Networking and Operations and a Bachelor's Degree in Math, History (World), and Sociology. Several years ago, I left a career in banking operations (bookkeeping, computer operations, etc.) to pursue a career as an educator. I must say, that was one of the best decisions of my life. I have enjoyed teaching like no other job!!


I am married (Coach Terry) with one child (Randi) who is a 2019 graduate of Center Hill High School. Coach Terry is a teacher in the Special Education department at Center Hill. Randi is attending the University of Memphis and plans to pursue career in English education. Prior to teaching, I worked for many years with the Independence FFA and Alumni to promote Agricultural Education in Mississippi and develop premier leadership skills in FFA members. I also previously served as the volunteer leader of the Hoof Prints 4-H Club near my home in Tate County. I primarily worked with 4-H members involved with horse and livestock projects and community service. I have also assisted with shooting sports, sewing, and cooking projects. My favorite hobbies are riding horses, hunting, and supporting all Center Hill Mustang happenings.


At Center Hill, I currently teach Algebra I and the math portion of the PSAT course. In previous years, I taught Geometry and Algebra II. 


I served as the assistant coach of the Center Hill Archery team for its first three seasons. I took over as head coach during the 2017 season, and I am very excited to continue in that capacity. 2020-2021 will be the eighth year for the program at Center Hill. The archery program has been very successful over the past few years, winning the county tournament multiple times and placing in the top three teams at both the North Half and State tournaments. If you'd like to know more about the archery team or are interested in sponsoring the team, please e-mail me at the contact link.
