    I've been at Hillcrest since 2004, been to eighteen proms, and am now one of the veterans around here! Time does fly. I'm the momma of four fur babies: three black cats, Rocky, Adrian, and Rambo, and a black Lab/Husky named Luna. Traveling and art are my passions. My addictions include coffee, sarcasm, laughter, music, and Alabama football. I love teaching Spanish, and am always excited to share my knowledge and cultural experiences with my students, because foreign languages are so much more than just grammar. 
    When students are absent, they should check my page on Schoology for missed assignments at https://www.tcss.net/Page/33883 , and always read our classroom Remind messages for important information.
