Dave Hughes is a wonderful Elementary teacher from the UK. He received his BS in Sports Studies from the University of Teesside and went on to complete his postgraduate teaching certification at the University of York. David taught in the UK for 7 years before moving to Onslow County, NC to teach 3rd grade at Dixon Elementary.
In June 2018, Dave was named Dixon’s Tech Savvy Teacher of the year and had the opportunity to present alongside his students at the OCS Unconference Technology Showcase.
Dave and his family live in a small town near Topsail Island where they enjoy spending time at the beach walking, fishing and staking out turtle nests. They have gone on road trips from New York to Florida and many places in between. Outside of school, Dave enjoys fishing, keeping up with his favorite soccer teams and has even gotten into American Football.
“Volunteering with the Topsail Turtle Project has been one of the most amazing experiences. We were lucky enough last season to play our part in nest excavations and be involved in the release of both hatchlings and rehabilitated sea turtles.”
