Mr. Steven Gary Hughes

Salutation Parents and Students,

Welcome to 7th Grade/8th Grade Social Studies! I'm Mr. Hughes and I am so happy to meet you. I know this will be a great year as we adjust and recover to our new surrounding from the past 18 months.

Before becoming a full time teacher, I served in both public and government positions in my previous careers. I have taught from the police academy cadet to combat fighter jet pilots.  I am a disabled veteran of the United States Armed Forces and retired law enforcement officer with a combination of 31 years of experience and service. I have served my country, my state, my city and my community. Now, I take great honor and privilege to teach your child that call Uvalde, their home. 

I am honored to serve as your teacher and excited to show and mentor your child; the world through the eyes of history. This is going to be an awesome year and a great class!
