Terri Hughes is elated to be a part of Campbell Union School District?s new preschool-eighth-grade school. She has been a passionate educator for over 30 years?all at Campbell Middle School and Campbell School of Innovation?striving to ignite students? passions for learning and curiosity about the world in which they live.
The challenge of working with younger students as they begin their educational journeys excites her. ?This is an opportunity to change the way we educate our future leaders,? she says. ?It is a chance to prepare our students to be critical and creative thinkers who will be prepared to compete in a quickly changing environment.?
Her own children attended a K-8 school, so she also understands the benefits of community that develop in this special setting.
Hughes has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Humboldt State University, a multiple subjects teaching credential from San Jose State University, and will be earning her Master?s Degree in Educational Leadership from Santa Clara University prior to the opening of CSI. She was Campbell Middle School?s Teacher of the Year in 2016, a finalist for District 5, California League of Middle School Educator of the Year, Google Certified Educator, and Leading Edge Digital Educator.
She enjoys spending time hiking all over the Bay Area?s trails with her husband.
