Ms. Maria Hughes

¡Hola! My name is Maria Hughes and I'm the High School Spanish teacher. I am very proud to tell you that I've been part of this family since 2006.

Now, a little more about me... I'm from Santiago, Chile, and I'm the proud mother of four. My youngest graduated from Natalia High School in 2018. I love Natalia and I love what I chose to do for a living.

I graduated from UTSA in 2003. My class is a mandatory elective. Students need the credits to graduate. Although learning Spanish is not easy, I do everything possible to help all those students who struggle to succeed. 

I try to reach all my students, but sometimes, that's a very difficult task. In the classroom, teacher and students work together to learn and have fun at the same time.
