Please let me introduce myself to you. My name is Patricia Hager and I am the new principal at Christ the King School.
I earned my Bachelor’s Degree, Credential and Master’s Degree (Admin-ED.) at California State University, Northridge. I joined the Los Angeles Archdioceses in the bi-centennial year and taught at St. Thomas the Apostle, St. Bridget of Sweden and St Mel School where I also was the vice-principal. From 2001 to 2014, I served the community of Our Lady of Lourdes Northridge as Principal. I was drawn back to the classroom in 2014 and now feel blessed to be in administration again.
It is just wonderful to walk into a school where Academic Excellences and Catholic Identity and faith formation are clearly evident. I have found Christ the King to be a place where students benefit from a challenging curriculum taught by staff that is fully credentialed, holding various degrees from a variety of universities. Thank you to all the teachers, students and parents who have already extended a warm welcome and offered their support. A very special “Thank you” to Mrs. Anderson for all of her support and for making herself available during this transition. She is truly a treasure and it is obvious to me that Christ the King has been in Mrs. Anderson’s heart for the past 12 years.
I am excited to be the principal of Christ the King School and look forward to working in partnership with the teachers, students and parents. Together we can build on the religious and academic foundation already established at Christ the King, strengthen it and meet the challenges of the Future.
In His Name,
“To act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with my God” (Micah 6:8).
