Mrs, Hagaman was my ninth grade Algebra teacher. Her passion for teaching math enhanced my love of math. She was also our Beta Club sponsor and chaperone for our ninth grade trip to New York. I absolutely loved her and can still picture her classroom at Valdese Junior High. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
