Hello! My name is Suzanne Hughes. I am originally from Waterville, New York ~ a small village with a huge population of nearly 2,000 people! I graduated from Oswego State University in Oswego, NY ~ right by Lake Ontario. I learned what cold felt like and how to shovel the white stuff.
I have taught in New York, Arizona, and Florida. I decided to take a risk and took a year+ off from teaching in 2000 to go on a 15-month sailing trip aboard a 37 ft. sloop. What a great opportunity!! I visited the Bahamas, Panama, Colombia, Honduras, Belize and Mexico before returning to the US to call Summerville my home.
I have been teaching 7th grade math and GATE math at GMS since the fall of 2001.
My summers have always found me traveling. I have been most fortunate to meet wonderful people and visit exciting places. This summer I spent three weeks hiking around and marveling at the beauty of Vancouver Island, British Colombia. Seeing bald eagles, deer, seals, etc. added to the excitement of a great vacation. I also spent a week in upstate New York visiting family and friends.
I look forward to another great year and cannot wait to get to know this year's fine group of seventh graders! Let's make it a great one! Remember: Be nice. Work hard.
