All About Me:
I enjoy teaching because I like to bring joy, fun, and enthusiasm to the learning experience. It’s beautiful to be able to share about God as well. The sense of community with my students is precious to me. My hobbies include beach walks, hiking, charcuterie boards, antiques, gardening, writing, Bible study, event planning, travel, cultural cuisine, real estate, and spending time with family.

The Hillcrest English department provides a comprehensive program in writing, literature, grammar, and vocabulary. Opportunities for both academic and creative writing provide students with the experience needed to find their personal voice and develop their skills in analysis, argumentation, and research. Our graduates are routinely recognized by their college professors as skilled writers with the ability to communicate far beyond the level of their peers. Literature studies include a focus on Shakespeare and the classics with particular emphasis on close reading, analysis, and biblical worldview. Grammar skills include the use of language conventions and the identification of parts of speech, parts of the sentence, verb tense and voice, phrases, and clauses. Vocabulary studies provide background on academic language commonly found on the SAT and ACT exams along with instruction on and practice with related skills. Our students graduate with confidence knowing they are fully prepared for the university of their choice.
