Educator Testimonials

“I used to think Manny Scott was the best speaker I had ever heard in my 46 years in education- and I still do. But I believe, after hearing him teach [my administrators and teachers] today, that his strongest suit is that of lecturing and teaching and interacting with an audience...He puts it in a way that is easy to understand. Plus, he brings great credibility to it because of his background."
– Dr. Keith Ballard, Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at Oklahoma University

"I’ve been in Education now going on almost 14 years. I was a teacher for 4 years. I was a school counselor for about 6 years. Now I am in my current role as an administrator. To be quite honest with you I was very discouraged the day that you came to speak. I’ve been thinking about transitioning to a career outside of Education for a while....

I was recently accepted into a very reputable MBA program, but I turned down the offer. I was starting to regret the decision I made until yesterday. While achieving my MBA might be in my future, I’ve gained a renewed sense of urgency for Education. I just wanted to send a note to say Thank You!"


Despite us being a rural community, his message reached our teachers because we have students struggling with the same issues that perhaps big city kids struggle with. Working with children and youth is personal. Manny drives that point home.– Nancy Shipley, Krum, TX
