Hello! My name is Aravind Malla and I will be teaching Algebra 1 and Geometry H this year. I am very excited to be a part of the Centaur family and look forward to contributing to the success of the students at Culver City high school. I grew up in Manhattan Beach where I graduated from Mira Costa high school. I went on to college at the University of California, Riverside. After I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from UCR, I returned to the South Bay/Los Angeles area, and enrolled at Loyola Marymount University for my graduate studies and to obtain my teaching credential. I am a very active person, I enjoy playing basketball and soccer, but my true love is surfing. Growing up in Manhattan Beach allowed me to have beach access everyday, and I have been surfing since my middle school days. If you'd like to know more about me, drop by sometime and say "hello," I am in room 19!
