Subject to mood swings. Pretty rude overall. He is not kind or understanding at all, but is rather mean so do not expect any sympathy in his class. He is a bit weird too. Good luck learning anything in his class. You will fall behind all of the other Latin classes and not be prepared for the NLE or tests.

Okay this dude is crazy! I had him for Ancient Greek this year, and honestly he made my whole sophomore year less worse than it would've been without his eccentric and weird (but funny) personality. Although he does get off topic sometimes, he is always eager to answer questions, and is generally a chill teacher. But make sure not to get on his bad side (he has a lot of things that set him off).

Mr. Hagerty is the loveliest of men. I can not describe how great his class is in words that will fulfil the feeling. He is a man who has a passion for his job and greatly cares about his students. Mr. Hagerty, if you are reading this, just know that I will never forget your class, and leaving it makes me feel so old. I'm being honest.

The worst Latin teacher I've ever had. His tests are based on material never covered in class. I have had to teach the material to myself. I can honestly say that I've learned more Latin outside of his class than in it.

He's amazing. I really don't see how he could be 'moody', unless he is disturbed while teaching by an annoying presence. Unfortunately, that seems to be the only entity filling the halls of Townsend nowadays..

Many female students like Mr. Hagerty simply because he is well-dressed, takes care of himself. However, I did not like his disorganized teaching style, and felt he was a poor Greek teacher. He would assign complicated Greek

hard to approach, stares silently, making you feel alienated. is paranoid, and once he's convinced one's been chewing gum, or something bad, will FORCE them to admit it, even though he's often wrong.
