In the summer of 2023, Paul Hagan joined the ESC of the Western Reserve as a STEAM Integration Specialist, bringing nearly 25 years of educational experience. He spent a significant portion of his career at Eastlake Middle School in the Willoughby-Eastlake School District, teaching subjects ranging from 6-8 Social Studies to Mathematics and Language Arts, thanks to his Elementary 1-8 Certification. Paul holds a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, specializing in Integrating Technology. His proficiency in this area was evident through his active role in addressing and creating technological solutions within the school environment. Paul has been trained in HQIM (High-Quality Instructional Materials) and is a part of the team working to revise and implement the new Discrete Math/Computer Science Course, serving as an alternative to Algebra II in Ohio high schools. Outside of education, Paul's love for technology and music led him to establish his own DJ company and serve as the director of modern worship at his church. He enjoys a happy marriage of over 20 years with his wife Denise and together they have three wonderful daughters. Now at the ESC of the Western Reserve, Paul is excited to share his creative energy in supporting districts within our community and beyond.
