Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Tommy “Coach” Hager, and I am very excited about PE at Pleasant Grove Elementary. As a native of NC, I grew up in Webster, next to Western Carolina University. My wife of 25 years, Alison, and I have two children. Our son, Will, attends UNC-Chapel Hill and our daughter, Foster, attends Apex High School. I graduated from Furman University in Greenville, SC with a degree in Health and Exercise Science. I then worked as the Youth Sports Director at the Cary Family YMCA for eight years before opening Salem Elementary as the PE teacher eighteen years ago. I love fly fishing, being in the mountains, working puzzles, playing board games, exercising, watching movies, and being with my family as much as possible.
