Glenn Detrick: Educational Catalyst, Writer, Traveler…

Glenn DetrickHello!
Thank you for visiting my website.

I am a former educator and small business co-founder/co-owner who retired at the beginning of 2003. I like to travel and have been to 88 countries on all seven continents. If you are a traveler or would like to travel, you may be interested in reading about or seeing pictures in the TRAVEL section of this website.

You are welcome to check out the BIO and other sections of this website to see if there are areas of mutual interest. The BOOK NOTES are kind of interesting, if you’re into the topics/books I have “reviewed.” The EDUCATION section is a potpourri, which includes information about university courses that I teach or have taught and rants in the area of education reform. The CHELSEA DETRICK section talks about one of my daughters. The other sections on this Home Page relate to my current passions. Thanks for visiting.

There are a couple of videos on Youtube that reviewers of this website may find of interest

  1.   Remarks in May 2018 to the St. Louis chapter of the Travelers Century Club. The topic is “How to Make Traveling an Experiential Learning Opportunity”. All of the people present at the meeting had been to at least 100 countries.

  3. The Director of the Chelsea Center in Nepal — Prashanna Bista —  put together this video to describe what we do with/for the children of Nepal Orphans Home — known in Nepal as Papa’s House.  You may wish to turn on ‘closed caption’ (which is imperfect, but pretty good) to watch this video.
