Ms. Alagna
    Hello, my name is Ms. Alagna and I am so excited to begin another year of teaching
at Hopedale High School. Believe it or not, I am a Hopedale native and part of the 2004 alumni! 
After high school, I moved to Boston and received my bachelor’s degree in English from Suffolk 
University. I recently graduated from Simmons College with my master’s 
degree in education. In my free time, I love to travel. Over the summer I went to San Francisco
and New York City! I also enjoy watching sports (I am a huge Patriots fan), reading, practicing yoga,
and exercising. I ran two half marathons, including the Boston’s Run to Remember.
In addition to teaching, I am also a certified yoga instructor! 
As a teacher, my goal is to guide students on the path to becoming lifelong readers and writers. 
Connecting literature to their lives and the world around them will help to achieve that goal. 
That’s it for now! I’m looking forward to my journey within Hopedale Public Schools! 
I also forgot to mention, I love animals. I have two dogs named Brady and Oscar.
