Teachers - High School
Hi there, my name is Mr. Hughes! I began teaching in Yellowknife in 2016 and have spent most of my time at K’alemi Dene School. My wonderful family - wife Michelle and daughters Juliet and Adeline - and I love the northern lifestyle which has been very good to us! We get to spend lots of free time together going for walks in the wintertime or enjoying the awesome family activities and sports this wonderful town offers. I feel it is an absolute privilege teaching in the Northwest Territories, especially at KDS. We have a very talented staff and amazing students I get to spend each and every day with. The community of Ndilo holds a special place in my heart.I love making my way into this community each morning or on the weekends to say a quick hello to my students who are often found enjoying the property. When I'm not at the school you can find me in my garage exhausting myself with challenging CrossFit workouts with my girls, or behind a camera taking family photos around town.
