As the founder of Rethink Education Foundation, Hunter leads the overall vision and technological goals for the non-profit. He started Rethink Education with the goal of assuring that students could learn anything with the proper tools and access. After serving in the US Army for ten years and then working for AT&T for 19 years, he knew that implementing a simple process is often the best way to solve a problem. Therefore, he devised a method to accomplish this task in 3 easy steps, where students can quickly find help with assignments and teachers can reach students outside their classroom. This process makes it easy for students find the answers they need, which allows more time for other family activities outside of schoolwork. Hunter feels that family and educational support are vital to building a student’s bright future.
Tammy oversees the financial, marketing, and fundraising for Rethink Education Foundation. She feels that education is vital to succeeding in life and wants to assure that students throughout the world have access to many educational opportunities. Tammy is passionate about utilizing today’s mobile technologies to reach students with different cultures, backgrounds and learning techniques. Since, each teacher has a unique way of teaching, and each student learns in a different way, it is key to expand the education outside of the classroom. Rethink Education bridges the gap between students and teachers, by expanding the student’s ability to find other teaching techniques in a variety of educational videos available for their textbook.
