Mrs. McHugh

Greetings, Wildcats!

I am a Writing Specialist for grades 7-12, and I will be working with the History and English Departments to make our writers GROW!

In the 2023-2024 school year, I will also be teaching Mystery Horror and Suspense in Literature, an English Elective course offered to students in grades 9-12. This class is in Room H18 in WHS.

I will also be teaching a 7th grade Writing Lab in Room M111 in EBIS.

My room is H20 in WHS. 

My strengths include building strong communicators and meeting students where they are, and my mission is to help every student gain a sense of independence and awareness of the world, and themselves, through writing :)

Parents and guardians, the best way of contacting is through email: I can also be reached by ext. 3020.

On a personal note, I live in Wappingers Falls. I teach kickboxing in my spare time, I enjoy cooking, hiking, and traveling. Above all things, I love hanging out with my family.

I'm looking forward to working with you all :) Catch you on the flip side!
