Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Jane Hughey

Jane Hughey graduated from Franklin Community High School in 1965.  She earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Evansville and her Master of science and education from Indiana University.  Jane has dedicated her entire career to Franklin Community Schools, having started after earning her degree almost 46 years ago.  

She exudes the guiding principles daily.  She is committed to providing students a world-class education.  Her unparalleled professionalism is a great example for those who have had the opportunity to work with her.  Her selfless devotion to her career and to her students is one of the many traits we applaud this evening.  Jane is a credit to the school district and the community.  Many colleagues were once her students, and they share the same admiration for her now as they once did as her students.

Jeff Mercer had the opportunity to work alongside Jane during the course of a very special, year-long project, which resulted in a children's book being published and distributed free of charge to scores of classrooms throughout Johnson County and Indianapolis.  He recalled that a couple things struck him immediately; what a skilled educator Jane was and how incredibly committed she was to the children of Franklin.  She is the epitome of a Master Teacher that bleeds Franklin blue.

Although Jane has been a leader in this district for nearly 46 years, she is continually striving to be innovative in her classroom.  At the Google conference held in Franklin this past spring, Jane was front and center, eager to learn, soaking in each new concept. She remains student-centered spending countless hours tutoring students outside of the school day.   

Jane continues to have a love and a passion for teaching as though it is her first day of school.
