Mr. Alan Hughes

With great excitement and pride, I am beginning my 5th year back home at NEISD and my 8th year in Education! I am a former graduate and a state champion from Winston Churchill High School, who played college soccer for UIW @ SA, graduated from Texas State University in 2012, earning a degree in ELA with an emphasis on creative writing.  Consequently, coaching and playing soccer have been a passion, so for over 15 years, I have officiated and coached the sport.  Moreover, I have taught British Literature for 7 years, Senior AP ELA for 1 year, and Freshman ELA for 1 year.  Fortunately, I married my wife Monica in 2015, and as a result, she blessed me with my two stepdaughters, Ysabella and Yliz.  Charles Santiago, my first-born, arrived in February of 2017, and David Leonel arrived over the 2019 Christmas holidays.  Essential life elements for me include family time, reading and writing, anything outdoors, teaching, coaching or playing soccer, bbqing, and exercising. Enthusiastically keeping Rider Pride alive!
