Ms. Ruby Hughes
Special Education-Day Transition Teacher
Hello! I am a Biloxi transplant and my first year was absolutely wonderful to me! I am so looking forward to this year! I am originally from Louisville, MS and I have 17 years total of working with students with disabilities. Four of those years were in a mental health environment. This will be my 14th year as a special education teacher and for someone who never wanted to teach, this has been the most rewarding career of my life!!! My previous experience outside the classroom included the following positions: Day Treatment Specialist for a counseling agency and Mental Health Specialist at a Behavioral Treatment Center.
I am currently pursuing my Ed.S. in Educational Leadership, as my career goal is to become a Special Education Director, but a building-level administrator is always a plus. I have degrees in Sociology and Criminology, Special Education, and Technology Education.
In my spare time, I just love being at home in peace. Having peace is essential to me!! I love photography and cooking, especially baking. I also enjoy meeting people, traveling, crime books and movies, encouraging others, but most importantly, loving what I do and being with those I love!!
