It is a pleasure to write this recommendation for Clint Chartier. I have known Mr. Chartier both personally and professionally for the past eight years. He is a responsible, energetic and informative individual.
Clint has been a guest speaker at Thompson Middle School since 1992. His lecture on the Native Americans of the Plains is outstanding. He keeps the attention of all students. The inclusion of authentic tools, crafts, clothes and homes gives the audience a true sense of life on the plains. Students are left with a lasting impression as they view and even handle some of his materials. The information on women, children and warfare dispenses all stereotypes of these people. Students leave his lecture knowing and understanding more than they ever could learn from a textbook. His ability to answer questions and deal with students of all abilities is an asset to his program.
It is without reservation that I recommend Clint’s program to you. I can assure you that he is professional in every aspect of his presentation. The fifth grade team and I are looking forward to this year’s program as he always has new and exciting information and materials to share.

Clint adjusted his lecture to accommodate the age group of the children. He captured the minds and imagination of the elementary students.
Clint Chartier gave a most informative presentation. His interaction with the students was a great hands-on learning experience. With presentations like Clint’s, we can add excitement and motivation to revisit our cultural past.
This lecture served as a valuable learning tool on Native American culture.
The Native American lecture was excellent and is a presentation that our schools would benefit from… Thank you for the opportunity of sharing this cultural experience in which student interaction was excellent.
An awesome presentation! What a wonderful way to address diversity in our schools.
Hands-on opportunities are particularly appealing. Breaking down stereotypes is a valuable service that Mr. Chartier offers. The details of daily life and the roles of males, females, young and old are interesting to contemplate. I personally learned a lot and saw items I have never had a chance to see (buffalo bladder! Writing on a buffalo hide and a sewing kit.) Mr. Chartier has a pleasant, upbeat presentation that will appeal to children and tweak their curiosity. Maybe I’ll write a grant to get him to Thomasville! He would expand the students’ understanding of our social studies curriculum.
This was a wonderful presentation. As a history teacher I am interested in learning about different cultures. Clint is doing important work.
An excellent program for any school group. Clint certainly knew his subject matter and you could tell he enjoys what he does.
