Today we’d like to introduce you to Gretchen Torbert, Ph.D., CHLC.
Gretchen, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started both of these companies over 15 years ago. As an educator, I saw the various diverse needs for unity and consistency as the cornerstone for educators to grow and develop. This became a life-long embedded journey which evolved into helping educators showcase their talent and publish their work. I used both of these companies to support educators across the world. Solid House Publishing has published over 100 books and Teachers Across the World has started several smaller branches such as Teachers of Atlanta, Teachers of New York and Teachers of Dubai.
Has it been a smooth road?
It is a blessing and a curse to serve as a servant. I make sure that I incorporate self-care techniques to ensure that I am practicing balance. I also pray, mediate, and speak affirmations to build myself and to fill my cup as I work to build and fill others. It is an assignment by God to serve as one of his ambassadors.
Teachers Across the World and Solid House Publishing – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
It is a blessing and a curse at times, I have the desire to operate in excellence and empower educators towards change and growth. As a leader, you wear a plethora of hats and it can be a lonely road to lead and pour. I find myself engaging into some self-care techniques to aid in helping me to be revive and stretch for daily so that I might effectively do the assignments given to me.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
For Solid House Publishing, we will continue to write and publish various genres. This includes empower people to put their thoughts into words, tell stories and develop resources. We want Solid House Publishing to be a National Household Name.
For Teachers Across the World, which is an international company, we will continue to develop the 100 chapters that we have on all platforms and work to make sure each educator in the work can benefit from our resources. This year marks our 5th annual conference June 20,2020. We want in 5 to 10 years have all of the chapters developing and running on their own with conferences yearly being incorporated.
- We have our publishing prices on Solid House Publishing.com, however we are running a $500 special for Package E.
