Mrs. Hagan

Dear Parent/Guardian(s),

My name is Mrs. Hagan and I am the Kindergarten and 4-5th grade lower school counselor.  

I grew up in Nixa, MO (just south of Springfield, MO).  I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, with a minor in Educational Theory and Curriculum, from Westminster College in Fulton, MO.  I obtained my Master of Arts in Counseling and Guidance at UMKC.  I have only lived in Kansas City for 3 years but I love this city and it's wonderfully diverse people.

On the "More on Mrs. Hagan" tab, you will be directed to the Prezi I share with students in order for them to get to know me a little better.

I want to help your child discover the
 strength they have within themselves.  I can help with topics such as: personal, social,  career exploration.  My goal is to help each child thrive in the school setting and extend that beyond into their daily life.  Please reach out to me with concerns you may have!

Call me at
(816) 412-5973 or email me at haganc@universityacademy.org.  I look forward to building many good relationships with you and your child this year! 


-Mrs. Hagan
