    I consider it a joy to teach at Hillcrest High School!  Although I attended UA, my eldest son presently attends AU.  Therefore, I say "War Eagle" more than my students would like.  I have two other children at home along with several animals.  My wonderful husband allows me to continuously name my dogs "Sandy" in honor of my childhood pet.  My motto is Romans 5:4-5, which says, "Patience produces character, and character produces hope.  This hope will never disappoint us."
