Every year we have new students come to Hereford, we also have another group of “newbies”: new teachers! This year we have five new teachers: Morgan Espeut, William Grome, Jennifer Houseknecht, Nolan Roe, and Ralph Causarano.

Espeut, is a Towson graduate with a bachelor degree in Family Science. She teaches Child Development, not only is this her first time teaching that course but this is her first-time teaching.  She grew up in Crofton and Annapolis. Outside of school she enjoys spending time with her two nephews and niece, going to the gym, shopping (her favorite stores are Boohoo, Forever 21, Marshalls, and Foot Locker), traveling, and learning new things. Over the summer she spent most of her time nannying and setting up her new apartment. Two fun facts about her is she has babysat over 25 children across Maryland, and is saving up to buy a Dodge Challenger sports car.

The newest addition to the language dept. is, Grome who graduated from Nazareth College of Rochester. He has been teaching for five years; four of which at Catonsville High School. He grew up in Syracuse, New York and spent most of this summer up there visiting his family. During his free time, he enjoys traveling, hiking, and bowling.

Houseknecht likes to read, bake, do yoga, garden, and spend time at the beach. Over the summer she enjoyed time with her family, and vacationing in the Bahamas and Narragansett, Rhode Island.
