Sarah Hughes, Kindergarten

My name is Sarah Hughes. My family consists of my husband, Chris, our daughter, Madi Grace, our dog, Jake, and our daughter who is due in February. This is my second year at St. John's and my second year teaching Kindergarten. I taught at St. Joseph Regional Catholic School in Florence for six years. I taught three-year-olds and computer to grades 3-8 for one and a half years, served as the school's Pre-K teacher for four years, and taught 3rd grade for one year.

I received my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from The University of North Alabama in December 2010. After marrying my high school sweetheart, Chris, I decided to go back and get my Master's degree. I received my Master's degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education in December 2012 from The University of West Alabama just in time for our first child, Madi Grace, to arrive in May 2013.

Kindergarten is an important and exciting year for students! For many it may be their first year in a school setting, while others are "old pros." Students will begin to learn how to form and write words, sound out and read books, and understand basic math concepts on top of learning about the world around them in science and social studies lessons. In my classroom, I like to use hands-on learning, technology, music and project based learning to enhance the learning of my students. It is such a blessing to be able to teach in a school where I can, not only extend my love of learning, but my love of God to my students as well.
