Mrs. Susan Hughes

Hello! My name is Susan Hughes and I am a Speech Language Pathologist with Athens City Schools. I have been a Speech Language Pathologist in the public schools for 24 years and have worked in the states of Texas, Florida, and Alabama. I am passionate about improving children's communication skills and delight in their success! Preschool, Autism, Augmentative and Assistive Communication, social skills and behavior are particular interests of mine. 

My husband and I recently celebrated 26 years of marriage. We have three children with our youngest being a senior at Athens High School. We love spending time together! We have 2 dogs, a cat, and my son owns a horse. Horses are absolutely my favorite animal and I spend time with them every chance I get! Other things I love include: Christ's love, grace and mercy, flowers, gardening, reading, and spending time with friends and family. I am looking forward to a great year!
