Hughes, Joshua - Social Studies

Hello North Buncombe parents and students. I've been teaching at North Buncombe Middle School for over six years. During my years at North Buncombe, I've taught as a special needs teacher in 7th grade math and 8th grade English Language Arts. I've also taught 7th grade Social Studies and now am teaching 8th grade Social Studies. Before coming to North Buncombe, I taught at East Yancey Middle and US. History at Erwin High School.
Welcome to my Classroom!

I have been teaching for over eight years at North Buncombe Middle school. I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with North Buncombe students every day. In 8th grade social studies we study US and NC history from 1492 to present day.

I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in History from UNC- Asheville in 2008. I am certified to teach middle and high school grades Social Studies, English, and K-12 Exceptional Children. I earned my Masters of Liberal Arts and Sciences with a concentration in History in 2015.

Parents can contact me by email: or by phone 828.645.7944.
