I'm Mr. Hughes and I am the Grade 3 teacher at Oakhill Academy. I am so excited to get to know you all! I moved to California from Amman, Jordan. I've been teaching around the world for over 20 years at international schools.
I think it is important to foster a warm classroom environment and community. I believe that all children want to do their best and reach their fullest potential. I employ the workshop method for reading, writing and math. Here's a glimpse of how our time during workshop is used:
"Let us pick up our books and our pens. They are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world. "
