Hello, my name is Erika Hughes and I am very excited to be joining the BCCIS team as the MS/HS Special Education teacher. I am a passionate and dedicated educator committed to student success through thoughtful engagement and inclusive education practices. This will be my 8th year abroad and I have lived in Turkey, South Korea and Vietnam. Before becoming a teacher I was a professional photojournalist for newspapers and magazines, and photography continues to be one of my hobbies including art, scuba diving and fitness. I am looking forward to getting to know your children and the emerging myself in the rich culture of Egypt.
