Three middle school teachers welcomed new family members last month. Husband and wife Jordan and Hillary Ethe, who teach English and science respectively, greeted son Cassius Lalek on Feb. 5, while physical education teacher Adia Armstrong gave birth to daughter Nia Cheryl on Feb. 15.

The community of young parents within the middle school faculty has been “enormously helpful and reassuring for us as new parents,” Hillary Ethe said.
