Sara Hughes
7th Grade Social Studies
Pine Grove Middle School
East Syracuse Minoa Central School District

Congratulations to our October 2015 Featured Teacher Sara Hughes. Sarah is a 7th grade social studies teacher on the STEAM Team at Pine Grove Middle School. She joined the district in 2004.

What are some of the innovative ways that Sara integrates technology into her curriculum?
Sara. Hughes is an exemplary leader in many ways. She thinks big but pays attention to detail in all aspects of her team, department, and school community. Sara provides that same type of leadership with technology integration. She puts the time, energy, and commitment into finding the best tool for the learning goal.  Sara never settles for the tools just because they are comfortable, known, or routine. She is willing to persevere to expand the opportunities for students and keep their learning rigorous and rewarding.  She never hesitates to explore new tools, websites, apps, and strategies. Sara evaluates to see what is working, revises what isn't, and is constantly upping her game. She is a lead learner with ESM's Google Apps for Education pilot and quickly expanded her instruction with new apps, add-ons, and extensions through that platform.  [ more... ]
