Dear Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to your child’s 6th/7th/8th grade year at Our Lady of Guadalupe School!  For the 6th grade parent, it is a time of discovery as their child takes their first steps into Junior High.  For the 7th grade parent, it is a continuing adventure as their child becomes even more experienced on their path toward 8th grade graduation.  For the 8th grade parent, it is a time in which both you and your child are split in two directions – both by looking back at the wonderful memories you have collected by being here at this marvelous school, as well as looking forward to the challenges that oncoming years have in store.  It is an exciting time for one and all!

I am now in my fourteenth year at Our Lady of Guadalupe, and am very happy to be back after a restful and reflective summer break.  I am happy to see so many familiar faces, and look forward to meeting new ones as well!

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.

Mrs. Kimberly Hughes
