My name is Valerie Hughes and this is my twelfth year at Crockett County Middle School. I was born and raised in Crockett County and am a graduate of Crockett County High School. I graduated from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona with a bachelor's degree in elementary education (k-8) with an emphasis on math.
I would also like to share a few other details about myself. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I absolutely love baseball! Go Cubbies! In addition, I enjoy traveling to places I have never been. But when I want to just have some down time for myself, I enjoy getting lost in a good book!
I am very excited to be the RTI Specialist for Crockett County Middle School and will consistently strive to positively influence all students to learn and grow. My goal is for our students to flourish socially and academically. This will require students to give their best effort in their education. If we work together as a community of teachers, parents, and school staff, we can help our students to succeed!
