Greetings! Welcome to our 1st grade class! My name is Karen Hughes, and I look forward to a great year working with our students and Benson West families!


I grew up in a small town in Iowa, but have spent a good part of my adult life in Omaha. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I did live in Chicago for a short time, and that is where I met my husband and had our children. Both of my kids attend OPS schools and keep me busy with their extracurricular activities. In my spare time, I do like to travel, swim, craft, or sew.

Please feel free to contact me anytime at with any questions or concerns. I believe it is important to work together as a team to help your child reach their greatest potential.
