Commissioner Glass Celebrates One Year at KDE by Co-Teaching at Meade County High School 

To celebrate his first year at the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE), Commissioner of Education Jason E. Glass returned to his alma mater, Meade County High School, on Sept. 17 to co-teach 9th-grade science with Jonathan Mangin. 

“There was an attempt to teach me mathematics in the very same room we are working in today,” he told students. “This was my 4th-grade classroom and I emphasize there was an attempt because I struggled with it.” 

Glass began the lesson with a hypothetical story of a 9.0 magnitude earthquake occurring on the New Madrid fault near Arkansas. The story went on to describe the effects of the waves from the earthquake on Brandenburg, Ky. The class was asked to investigate if the story could one day be factual or would stay fictional.
