"I love teaching and I love working with kids," he said. "This is going to be a great job for me; a great position."
Though he believes the school is mostly up to date with its use of technology in the classroom, Hughes hopes he can use his background to help ELCS teachers wishing to become even more tech-saavy.
"I just want to find out what's working really well now and help move it forward," he said.
Hughes also shares the high regard that many faculty have had for his predecessor.
"I'm impressed with what Mr. Osborne has done with the school over the past two years," Hughes said, "and I look forward to continuing a lot of the good things that he's done."
School superintendent Gail Else said parents, teachers, and school board members were all impressed with the enthusiasm and
"Ken has all the of the skills to easily carry on the things that Scott initiated," said Else. "I feel Scott is leaving the student body in very capable hands."
