Teachers Count: Scotty McCreery

I was searching around on Tumblr and I saw this picture. I did some googling and found the info below. Enjoy :)



From the Teachers Count Facebook page:

The "Behind Every Famous Person Is a Fabulous Teacher Campaign" fulfills one of the main facets of the TeachersCount mission raising the status of the teaching profession.

TeachersCount recently had the pleasure of meeting 2011 American Idol Winner, Scotty McCreery and his fabulous teacher and baseball coach
Derek Goffena. McCreery credits Goffena for pushing him to beat the odds.

He told me, “You have to work hard. If it comes easily, it’s probably something you don’t want.”

Please stay tuned for more celebs and their favorite teachers in 2012...

From the photographer's website:
I don’t know many of the American Idol contestants. I rarely watch the show. But for some reason I had heard of Scotty McCreery. Not sure why – he’s a country singer (I don’t listen to that genre), he won last season’s American Idol (I didn’t watch it) and he lives in Garner, just outside of Raleigh (I’ve never been there). So, when I got the call to photograph him at his high school (Garner Magnet School) I was thrilled – I love new experiences. Photographed on location in the library of Garner High School for TeachersCount, we took portraits of Scotty alone and with his teacher/mentor Derek Goffena. I also had a little help from the high school yearbook staff and my assistant Elizabeth Larson and stylist Claudia Gunn. Here’s the poster:
