    “A former principal, Mr. Weid, met with me and said he’d like me to teach more classes at the high school because at the time I only taught one class,” Anderson said. “I suggested guitar class. Mr. Weid asked me if I played guitar, and I lied through my teeth and said, ‘Yeah, sure I play guitar…kind of.’”

  • Henry County collegian to student-teach down under

    There was no way Justin Yount would travel abroad, much less teach overseas. 

    That is, until a pal who had applied to student-teach in Australia convinced Yount to apply for the program through the University of Kentucky Career and Technical Education program, where both men study.

    “There was no way I was going to get it [the position],” Yount said. “I just thought, ‘that’s an hour and a half I’ll never get back.’”

    Applicants needed a GPA over 3.25 and social and academic maturity.
