Welcome to the World of Literature


My name is Tim Hughes. I earned my BA in English and a Minor in Sociology at Northern State University and a Masters in Education degree from the University of Sioux Falls. I have taught in Garretson since 2006 and currently teach American Literature, General Literature and Film Appreciation. I believe that every student has the chance to succeed if they simply give their best in all they do!


Feel free to contact me with any classroom related concerns and I will do my best to work with you and your student to address them. Tim.Hughes@k12.sd.us or (605) 594-3452 Ext. 317
