Ms. Karen Hughes / Interim Head of School

I have three sons, Chip, Dale and Aaron, who have blessed me with three of the most wonderful daughter-in-laws ever, Stephanie, Chasidy and Joanna.  The most important (and fun) job I have is being “Meme” to four precious  grandchildren, Emily, Ellie, Bryce and Nate. I recently retired from Dorchester District Two after 32 years in public schools teaching Kindergarten, First, and Second grades.  I began praying for God’s guidance and wisdom for the coming years.  His answer was for me to serve here at The Oaks.  I love coming to work each day and being able to share my faith in Christ openly with children. I love being with the children and sharing their experiences and education.  When I am not at OCS I enjoy travel, sewing, gardening, and the beach. I became a believer at an early age through the guidance of wonderful Christian parents.  I attend Crossroads where I teach K5-3rd grade Sunday School second hour.  Psalm 119:11 instructs us to hide God’s word in our hearts so that we may not sin against Him.  Teaching children God’s word is one of the greatest joys of my life.   Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the Oaks family and share your mission.
