    Hillcrest High School  2011-present

    I am thrilled to be teaching English at Hillcrest for the 11th year!  I grew up in a military family, and we were stationed in 5 states before I settled in Tuscaloosa for college--and never left! I am a proud graduate of the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) and love cheering on my Hillcrest Patriots on Friday nights and the youth Patriots and Crimson Tide on Saturdays!  My husband and I have two children.  When I'm not teaching or attending Hillcrest events, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends,  boating, cooking, coming up with more cheesy things to say in class, and serving at my church.
