Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Tonya Hughes and I have been given the privilege of working with the Sparkman team of counselors to serve the needs of our students and their families. I look forward to helping you along the journey of highschool as well as help you prepare for life after high school.
A little about me:
I am originally from Eufaula, Alabama. In leaving Eufaula, I have lived in 9 countries and speak 5 languages.
I hold a Bachelors Degree in Education from Troy University, and have obtained my Masters Degree in the field of School Counseling at the same University. I am driven to work with youth in many ways. With my girls we have volunteered for six years with a ministry that feeds and works with the homeless. I was a middle school teacher for more than 5 years and have taught every subject area. My heart has led me to be a counselor to better serve our youth in preparation for adulthood; equipping you with the tools and resources to be successful. My desire is to build a growing relationship with each student in our care. I am excited to grow with each of you.
My two oldest daughters will be attending Sparkman High School this year. The oldest is sixteen and a Junior. The second is a fifteen year old sophmore. Our smallest firecracker is also a girl who will be entering the second grade at Legacy Elementary. We love to spend time together as a family with lots of activities that include shopping, hiking, exploring and traveling.
