“Learning is a lifelong thing,” explains Emily Quick, Center Hill’s new Visual Arts teacher.

At the end of the 22-23 school year, Center Hill High School welcomed many new teachers, one of them being our new Visual Arts I teacher, Emily Quick. She became a Mustang mid-April last year, and Center Hill helped her feel at home with lots of encouragement from its staff and students.

From a young age, she knew she loved to teach. She took her love of teaching and attended the University of Mississippi and received a degree in education. She’s taught for six years, teaching a variety of subjects, such as ninth grade English, Astronomy, Biology, and Earth and Space.

One of the many things Quick enjoys about Center Hill High School is that everybody was so kind to her when she came in last school year.

“Everybody here, including students, my co-workers, and our administration staff, were all so kind and so encouraging and helpful, and that gives you a really good pulse of the school, around April and May everybody was still on their game, and really excited to be here and proud of their job and of their school.”

Quick hopes that all her students will learn that it’s okay to make a mistake—to not just sit in the failure but to take that failure and do something with it, improve it, because that’s what builds character. One teacher that inspired Quick the most was her 9th and 12th grade gifted English teacher who taught her that learning is more important for the sake of your brain and to become a better person.

“Learning is a lifelong thing, and it is so much more important than your GPA and your grades, which was really important to me at the time,” explains Quick. 

Quick wants her teachers and students to know that she’s excited for the 2023-2024 school year, and she cannot wait for what the future holds!
