Mr. Hannon has a gift for teaching English in a way that appeals to everyone. “He can reach and stretch our strongest AP students,” said a colleague. “At the same time, he can reach and empower students who are accessing the general English curriculum for the first time as well as students with learning challenges.” A voracious reader and founder of the non-profit Poetry N.O.W., Mr. Hannon uses books students can relate to but that also tie in with the classics. His lessons may be riddled with groan-worthy dad jokes, yet students praise him even as they work hard. In addition to coaching Boys Varsity Tennis and heading the afterschool poetry club, he runs the Annual Poetry Slam, one of Hayfield’s most popular events.

Congratulations also to the other Hayfield Secondary School staff members recognized at FCPS Honors!
