My name is Beth Hughes. I am a technology-loving, high school English teacher whose mission is to reintroduce her students to the love of reading. This is my 19th year as an English teacher (and 15th year at WMHS).

Now, before you try to do the math to figure out how old that makes me, I’m 25.

Or at least, my husband, Eric, says I don’t look a day over 25, and that, my friends, is why I’ve been married to that smart, smart man for 20 years. We have two children, Anna & William. Recently, we purchased my childhood home, and because itlooks like the house I grew up in, we’ve been renovating for 8 years and counting.

I dappled in higher education and management before becoming a high school teacher, and I feel blessed to have stumbled into something that I absolutely love. I’m excited to share what I’ve learned, as well as learn what my students have to teach me, in the English classroom!
