Site Technology Coordinator
Daniel Hughes

Hello Copper Ridge Families.  I am the Site Technology Coordinator and Computer Science Specialist teacher here at Copper Ridge.  I am beginning my third year at our beautiful campus and my twelfth year in Vail.  My role here allows me to share my passion and experience working with technology and computers with our students during their library specials time.  When not teaching my responsibilities include managing and maintaining all forms of technology here at Copper Ridge.

I am originally from San Jose, California; but spent most of my life in Tucson.  For my undergraduate degree I attended Northern Arizona University and completed my B.S. in Health Promotion and Physical Education.  Upon returning to Tucson I attended the University of Arizona and completed my Masters degree in Science and Math Education.  Over the course of my years in Vail I have had the privilege to teach Elementary and Middle School Physical Education, 6th Grade Math and Science, and ELP.

I am fortunate to live in the Vail Community with my lovely wife Shelly and out two boys, Thomas and James.  Together we love exploring Tucson and all of the wonderful nature and outdoor experiences in the area.  We enjoy traveling and make frequent trips to neighboring states to visit family or just try something new.
