My name is Marian Hughes and I'm a Reading Interventionist for grades 3,4,and 5. I grew up in Lamesa and have many great memories of school and my teachers. I graduated from Lamesa High in 1978 and immediately enrolled into Texas Tech. I couldn't wait to be a Red Raider! My Mom and Dad were both Tech graduates, so I wanted to follow in their footsteps. My brother also graduated from Tech. I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Reading from Texas Tech in 1982. I love teaching children!
My husband, Greg Hughes also grew up in Lamesa. He is a Lamesa High School graduate of 1976. Greg received his teaching degree from Wayland Baptist and taught Cabinet Making for the Windham School District at the Preston E. Smith Unit for 23 years.
We have two children who also graduated from Lamesa High School. Our daughter, Meredith Copeland graduated from LHS in 2002 and received her Business Finance Degree from Texas Tech in 2006. She is a Marketing Director for National Lloyds Insurance and lives in Sterling City with her family.
Taylor, our son graduated from LHS in 2006 and received his Business Management Degree from Angelo State in 2010. He is employed by Warren Caterpillar in San Angelo. He is also married to a Lamesa graduate, Kelsye (Adams) Hughes. They live in San Angelo and have two children.
As a family, we love hunting, water sports and other outdoor activities. We have tons of fun together!
I am very excited about the new year! In my classroom, I teach reading to small groups of students. Reading Intervention consists of small group intensive instruction, designed to accelerate struggling readers' acquisition of priority skills such as phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and text comprehension. My goal is to help the student, not only become a successful reader but to influence the student in a positive way.
This year, Intervention will be implementing a new computer program called Velocity. This is a new exciting tool that will motivate and engage Intervention students to work on the skills they need to learn to become better readers.
I'm really excited about the new school year! Come check out our new program!
