Despite being only 35 years old, Futrell has been working in the same place for 13 years, which he said was “long enough to get a few gray hairs.” Before becoming assistant principal at Trigg County Intermediate School, he taught special education for eight years.
Futrell said that he felt he had made a good transition as the school got off the ground in the first year. He said that moving the fifth grade out of the middle school had been a good decision on the part of the Board of Education. He said that this year, teachers would be teaching in a more specialized way. While most teachers had to teach as much as five subjects in the past, they will be teaching only two or three this year. Futrell said that teachers are happy to be concentrating on their favorite subjects and that this would also allow them to devote more time to reading and math.
