Staff Spotlight - Shamus Hagen

Shamus Hagen - École Sir John Franklin High School

Shamus has an amazing resume of teaching experience. His career started in Ontario where he is originally from and from there he has had the opportunity to teach in England and the NWT. After teaching in Behchoko for four years, this year he has joined us at Sir John. Shamus has made a name for himself already at Sir John as coach extraordinaire. Shamus has volunteered many hours coaching in what seems like every sport the school has offered this year. He stays late after school to open the fitness room for kids who would like to work out. He has made a great connection with the students. On top of teaching and coaching, Shamus enjoys spending time with his wife. They love to travel and enjoy as much time as possible together, as his wife still works in Behchoko and commutes daily.
