Principal's Page

Hello! My name is Joe Young and I am proud to be the principal of Kathryn Hughes Elementary School. This is a warm, wonderful, and caring community of educators, families, and learners. I am beyond honored and humbled by this opportunity to partner with everyone, support the high quality teaching and learning, and attend to the social and emotional needs of everyone.

I joined Santa Clara Unified School District in 2018 after 17 years in a neighboring school district where I taught first, second, and fifth grades, and also served as an instructional coach in the elementary education department.

On behalf of the amazingly talented educators at Hughes Elementary, we thank you for sharing your children with us and look forward to partnering with all of you for your child's continued growth.

Please feel free to contact me at or 408-423-1501 if you have any questions or concerns.
