The first speaker I have encountered who is not only
inspirational, but also gives extremely valuable information and
resources. I have heard Rhett speak three times and have NEVER
been disappointed and neither will you!
~ Shellee Beatty, Human Resources Coordinator, Stillwater
I attended your Torchbearer program in Athens. Thank you so
much for what you shared with us. I am a 22-year veteran teacher
who had been considering throwing in the towel. I left your
workshop with a new motivation and a new determination to
fulfill my call as an educator!
