  • Bagley believes “What I do MATTERS. What all educators do MATTERS. It is my job to instill pride and confidence along with the knowledge necessary to be a productive, well-rounded citizen.”


  • Bagley says, “Since taking on the daunting task of developing a dyslexia program for an entire district while never leaving the classroom, I have had the opportunity to touch the lives of countless students. I teach dyslexic students how to read so they can read to learn. It doesn’t get any better than that!”
