Mr. Justin M. Hughes, M.Ed.

I am originally from Vidor, TX.  This will be my second year at Thornton Middle School. I will be teaching Pre-AP Algebra and 8th Grade Math.  Before working at Thornton, I was at Clements High School for three years.  At Clements I taught Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 and I was the Assistant Head Football Coach, Defensive Coordinator, Inside Linebackers Coach and Head Girls Track Coach.  Before coming to Clements I was at Westbury High School for one year where I was the Defensive Coordinator and taught Precalculus.  Before that I spent six years at Hightower High School where I was the Defensive Line Coach and taught Precalculus.  Also, I spent a year and a half at Northbrook High School where I was a Freshmen Football Coach and taught Geometry and Physical Education.  Throughout my career I have also coached Powerlifting, Baseball, Soccer, and Basketball.  I have also taught Geometry, Pre-AP Geometry, Math Models, and Advanced Quantitative Reasoning.  I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Kinesiology and Mathematics with Education Certification from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX.  I also earned my Master's of Education in Educational Technology Leadership with Principal Certification from Lamar University in Beaumont, TX.


I am married to my wonderful wife, Rebecca, and we have two children, daughter Harley and step-son Matthew.  We live in Fort Bend ISD and our children attend Fort Bend ISD schools.  


I truly believe that hard work does pay off.  I have experienced it in my personal life and in the lives of my students and athletes over the past nine years.  This coincides with my favorite quote from a great man known as James Tiberius Kirk - "I don't believe in no-win scenarios."
