Dr. Daryl Hagan, former Holy Name School principal and teacher, will hold a book signing for his first book, “Communion and Community: 46 Ways to Engage Catholic School Faculty and Staff During the School Year,” from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Jan. 11 at the Henderson County Public Library.
This is Hagan’s first book.
Hagan currently serves as the Interim Director of the Institute for the Transformation of Catholic Education and the Directory of Catholic School Accreditation at The Catholic University of America.
He is a member of the HNS class of 1978, an HNS teacher from 1989 to 1991 and HNS principal from 1997 to 2010. He and his wife, Jill, are members of Holy Name Church.
“Communion and Community” shares effective practices that will help Catholic schools promote genuine trust and collaboration among all members of the faculty and staff, said a news release.
For some Catholic educators, this is not in their comfort zone; however, this book is meant to give them the confidence to start with one activity and to experience the difference it can make in their school, the release said.
“Communion and Community” includes activities that administrators can do with faculty and staff in each season of the school year, as well as activities by theme, so that they can customize the timing of the activities based on what they need, said the release.
