Mrs. Carol Hughes




Welcome and thank you for visiting our classroom homepage!! I am so excited to embark on another year with the big kids on campus—6th graders! I have been teaching for 29 years, and over half of these have been teaching 6th graders. I love their energy, enthusiasm, and ability to grow as learners, leaders, and members of a team. As always, my goal is that my students work AND play hard, creating memories as we learn.

When I am not at Gayman, I love to spend time with my husband, Tommy, and our two children, Tyler and Kelsey.  Together we enjoy exploring new places, jogging at Peace Valley Park, and, of course, cheering on our favorite football team, the LSU Tigers. Reading is also a passion of mine. I belong to two book clubs, and also love sharing new authors and books with students. 

I feel incredibly blessed to teach at a great school imbedded within such an amazing community! Sixth grade is a very special year, and I can’t wait to share it will all of you!  Let the memory-making begin!
