    Hillcrest High School: 2012 - Present


    I am so happy to be a part of the Hillcrest High School family. I have lived in Tuscaloosa since I was 5 years old and graduated from Hillcrest in 2007. Even though I have moved to the other side of Tuscaloosa in recent years, Taylorville will always be my home. I’m a Patriot for life!  I am a proud graduate of the University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE ROLL!), and love a good football Saturday. I am also the majorette, danceline, and colorguard sponsor here at Hillcrest, which keeps me busy many nights and weekends. When I am not teaching, grading, lesson planning, or sponsoring the HHS Visuals, I enjoy spending time with my friends, eating brunch, serving the community through my church, watching movies, laughing at T-Rex jokes, and organizing every aspect of my life! Although you may hear many kids call me "Ms. Peeks," I have recently married the funniest man around who also teaches history, but unfortunately at our rival school Tuscaloosa County High School (booooo). Go Patriots!
