Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Denise Adams-Cortez

As part of the Hillcrest English department, I am proud to work with the students and staff in AUSD. I currently serve as the English department chair, WASC coordinator, the HHS intervention teacher and help run the Lit Center. The Lit Center is our after school mentoring program and is located in the Hillcrest library, just across from the entrance. We are open from 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Monday through Friday. Here, students are able to get after school help from teachers and qualified and trained student mentors in nearly all subjects. Mrs. Stanfiel and I are there to help on a daily basis in Math and English.
