He'll also be wearing the hat of music teacher. Quilit has been playing the guitar for 40 years.

"The kids love the electric guitar," he said. "Even the kindergarten class."

Furthering his own education, Quilit is pursuing his Master's of Education from Liberty University .

Quilit can personally attest to the positive effect that Rocky Bayou's curriculum has on students. He has two daughters enrolled at the school, Keilana, in third grade, and Hannah, a senior.

"Our girls have done so well," Quilit said proudly. "It's really a nice testament to the school."

Although the curriculum is Christian-based Quilit says he wants students to leave with open minds.
