Siler finds similarities between teaching, working in the military

 HEBRON ESTATES - 1SG Gene Siler knows that working in a school building is not much different than working in the military.

“There are many parallels of teaching a student and training a soldier,” he said.

The retired Army veteran has done both, and his instructional skills led to his selection as the 2018 Bullitt County High School Teacher of the Year.

Siler has worked with the North Bullitt JROTC program for three years. He is the first Bullitt County JROTC teacher to receive the award.
