Rhett Hughes - Innovation Specialist

Welcome to Mr. Hughes's Classroom!

Welcome back Falcons!  I hope you have had a great summer and are ready for another school year!  A little about your instructor...


I was born and raised in south Florida before moving to South Carolina for high school.  I earned my BA in both Social Studies Education and Psychology from Wake Forest University, and then earned my MA in Social Studies Education from the University of Rhode Island.  I've lived in 5 different states as far away as Rhode Island, but I have stayed at least one night in all 50 states, as well as traveled to the Caribbean, Canada, Mexico, Russia (as well as the Baltic States), and China.  I hope I can bring some of this worldwide perspective to our classroom and that it will serve useful in being global citizens.


I'm married with two wonderful children.  Each summer we try to travel as much as possible.  This summer we went on a hunt for the coolest dinosaurs in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History (Washington DC) and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History (Pittsburgh, PA). We also had a chance to tour the White House this summer which was a lot of fun! And we took in a few professional baseball games this summer watching the Nationals play the Red Sox and the Pirates play the Phillies. pic collage
