Mrs. Teresa (Terri) Hughes

Mrs. Hughes was reared in Western Pennsylvania and graduated with a Bachelor's of Music Degree from Dana School of Music at Youngstown State University, Youngstown, Ohio. She taught middle school and high school choir and general music for eight years until her boys were born, and then went back to YSU for her Master of Arts Degree in English.  When the boys were all in school, she began teaching English at Columbiana High School in Columbiana, Ohio, where she coached the state-level Columbiana High School Speech and Debate Teams.  The Hughes Family came to Charlotte County right before Hurricane Charley.  All three boys graduated as Tarpons, were very active in CHS Swim Teams, and are now contributing members of society.  In her spare time, Mrs. Hughes teaches spinning classes at the Punta Gorda YMCA and Anytime Fitness in Burnt Store Isles, runs an occasional triathlon, enjoys spending time with her husband and their family, and, of course, doting on her granddaughter and grandson!
