Ms. Julie Hughes
My name is Julie Hughes, and I am thrilled to be joining the 1st grade team at Oakview Elementary! I grew up in Massachusetts, and moved to North Carolina in 1996 to begin my teaching career. I have earned a B.A. in Psychology from Wellesley College, a Masters in Teaching and Learning from Harvard Graduate School of Education, and National Board Certification. I have taught 1st grade for 14 years in WCPSS at Timber Drive Elementary, Banks Road Elementary, and most recently at Hortons Creek Elementary.
My husband, Kevin, and I have three wonderful children- Braden (8), Ciaran (7), and Caitlin (6). We also have a 5-year old cockapoo named Marley. I love tennis, Jazzercise, and reading. I love to travel, and I spend a few weeks each summer with my family on Cape Cod. I obtained Irish citizenship in 2006, and I look forward to returning to Ireland with my children some day, so they can gain a deeper understanding of their Irish heritage.
I am looking forward to getting to know all of my little owls and their families...we are going to have an OWLSOME year together!
