Charter School Specialist
Ms. Fagan led Cedar Hill Collegiate High School to nationally recognized status. At this Early College Public Charter High School, she provided students with the rigor, depth, and intensity of college-level work in a very personalized instructional environment and the opportunity to earn their Associates Degree. In doing so, Ms. Fagan's high school was named by Newsweek as America's Top High School three times and consistently earned all eligible TEA Distinctions. In 2016, her school reached the status of the third best Early College High School in the nation and number one in the state of Texas!

Ms. Fagan was also charged to start-up and simultaneously lead Cedar Hill Collegiate Academy. This school is a charter middle school founded in 2015 as a choice school to capitalize and create a pathway to the existing Early College High School. In the school's inaugural year, Ms. Fagan led her school to earn all five eligible distinctions from TEA.

In addition to her charter experience, Ms. Fagan has been a Dean of Instruction and District Instructional Coordinator in a traditional district. She trail-blazed innovative educational change, including Smaller Learning Communities under the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation grants.
