I don't know Jim Hageman.
I know his lovely wife, Tia, teaches kindergarten at my kids' elementary school.
I know they have a happy baby together.
Jim is 30-ish. He teaches PE at Dominic's middle school.
But I want to know him more.
Because yesterday when I picked up Dominic from track, there was Mr. Hageman, dressed in black sweats and a black cap, at 4:40 on the valley floor between the Cascade Mountains and Grizzly Peak, showing one kid how to throw a discus.
It was late. It was cold. Jim had been throwing and dunking and running and batting since 8 AM.
And yet, he was still working. He was still teaching.
Jim Hageman. I don't know much about him, but what I do know is really impressive.
