Jim Hagen - Colby Middle School Principal (Grades 4-8) / Activities Director (District Wide)
I am serving in my seventh year as the Principal of Colby Middle School as well as Activities Director. I have been in education for 26 years, all in the School District of Colby. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary and Middle School Education from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh with a minor in Mathematics and a Master’s Degree in Administration from the Marion College in Fond du Lac. I started my career as 7th mathematics teacher for 10 ½ years and then spent ½ year as Dean of Students and Athletic Director. I then became the Associate Principal of Colby Middle/High School for 8 years. In addition to my teaching and admin duties, I have been serving as Varsity Assistant Football coach for the past 22 years. Feel free to contact me by email or phone for whatever reason so we can ensure that we meet the needs of all our students.
