Getting to come into work each day and see the smiles of my students’ faces is so heartwarming and can make any rough day better! The relationships I have built over the years with my students, my colleagues, my administrators, and my volleyball players are relationships that I hold close to my heart and will do so as long as I live. It really is so great to be a Hefner Viking!”
