About Us

R.T. Fisher Educational Enterprises® is the product of passion: passion for learning, passion for teaching, and passion for the positive impact that committed, well-prepared educators can make on the futures of young people, and thus, on our society itself.

Dr. Robyn T. Fisher has that passion, and she has assembled a team of professional staff, Educational Associates and Educational Consultants that share her belief that all children can learn -- if we care enough about them to prepare ourselves to meet them where they are and help them get to where we know that they can go.
