Welcome to 8th Grade!

This year is an amazing year of both reflection and adventure. It is a time in which an 8th grader can look in two directions – both by looking back at the wonderful memories they have collected by being here at this marvelous school, as well as looking forward to the challenges that this year as well as the oncoming years have in store.

Please be sure to check the announcements page for upcoming school events and important classroom information.


My name is Kimberly Hughes.  I am the 8th grade homeroom teacher here at Our Lady of Guadalupe School, and teach 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math and science. I am now in my fourteenth year of teaching here at OLG, and am very excited to see what this year has in store for both myself and my students!

Prior to my arrival at Our Lady of Guadalupe School, I was the 6th grade homeroom teacher at St. Bernard School in East Oakland for 3 years.  At that school, I was also the Middle School Math teacher – so I brought my expertise in that realm with me to Our Lady of Guadalupe.  I have my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of California at Santa Barbara, as well as a Masters of Business Administration from Santa Clara University.  I also have my multiple-subject teaching credential from the California State University system.  I hope that my varied educational background will serve me well in educating your children, as I have a vast depository of information to draw from.

A child is educated by all adults in their life – not only their teacher.  I look forward to working with you, the parent, to ensure that your child becomes as successful as possible in their school life.  Please do NOT hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.  I will get back to you as soon as possible if you leave a message with the office.  The best way to contact me is via email.  To email me, you can reach me at my school email, khughes@csdo.org .  Schoolwork assignments will be updated on a regular basis on this site.
