My name is Lauren Hughes and I am so exctied to be teaching fourth grade at TIS. I was born and raised in the Birmingham area, more specifically, Fultondale. I went to Fultondale schools my entire life and graduated from Samford University. I am a family girl, so I am grateful for any chance I get to spend with them. Even though teaching is my passion, my summers are filled with the excitement of running camps at Cornerstone Ranch. In my spare time, I enjoy running, reading, painting, and outdoor activities. Oh, and I recently got engaged!! This year is going to be full of fun, learning, and many adventures. I cannot wait to see what is in store for us in fourth grade!
