If it's is for teaching purposes you may want to look into using GFP in yeast
which shows up really well under the uv filters.  Also candida work with
flourescent dyes like DAPI and calcoflour are great for students especially
with hyphae where you can see the septa and nucleus very clearly
Just a small point it's a fluoresCENCE microscope I presume, a flouresCENT
microscope is just one that's easy to find in the dark :-/
