Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Room 105! My name is Linda Hagan and I'm very excited to begin my 31st year of teaching. All my years have been with the Ann Arbor Public Schools; 17 years at Mitchell Elementary and this year begins my 14th year at King. I've taught 5th grade, 3/4 multi-age, 4/5 split, and, my favorite, 4th grade! I have a Bachelor of General Studies from the University of Michigan and a Teaching Certificate and Masters in Reading from Eastern Michigan University. I am a Certified Responsive Classroom Teacher and am working toward becoming a Responsive Classroom Trainer.
When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family: my husband, Jeff, of 37 years, Madeleine, a second-grade teacher in Calumet, MI, Elly, an Executive Assistant in Chicago, and Henry a senior at Skyline spending his time in the Home Building Program. I love to read, cook, knit, swim, kayak and hike. I spend much of the summer at our cottage in Omena, Michigan planning for the school year!
