Mrs. Patricia Hagan

I am originally from Portugal but I grew up in Bethlehem and Scranton, Pennsylvania. I graduated from Mansfield University in 2013 with a Bachelors in Political Science and a minor in Criminal Justice; I moved on to graduate school at the University of Scranton and graduated in 2016 with a Masters in Secondary Education.

After graduation, I moved to North Carolina and have been working for Onslow County Schools ever since. I taught American History I, American History II, and Civics/Economics at Jacksonville High School from 2016-2020. I moved to OVS during the 20-21 school year and have been here ever since! I have taught American History II, Civics & Economics, Civic Literacy, and now Economics and Personal Finance. OVS is the best place to be, I love teaching virtually and getting to know each one of my students without the distractions of in-person learning. 

I am married, have a one-year-old daughter, 2 dogs, and 2 cats. You will see all of them occasionally during our virtual sessions!
