Thinking back and reflecting on the people that come in and out of your life, Margaret Guertler, a former High School English teacher of mine, is a teacher who went beyond teaching basic skills, she gave life lessons” Selthofner stated in a recent interview.  He went on to add “she supported our own unique individualism.  I was taught to speak up about what I believe in and I credit this to my education and life experiences, no doubt Margaret Guertler has helped mold many students into the productive citizens they are today.  We owe her and many teachers a huge thank you.”

Selthofner has volunteered extensive time for the reform of marijuana laws.  He followed his former educators lead by “Teaching Hemp and Cannabis” to his extended communities.  He organized a variety of educational seminars dubbed “T.H.C.
