Trent Burkett is a veteran music educator with over 30 years of experience. In his career, he travelled regularly with his students and has had the opportunity to see many US cities. He currently serves as a Sales Director for the Guardian Travel Group and has been with the company since 2016.
Outside of his Educational and Professional career, Trent likes to travel with his family and is somewhat of a "Foodie". His favorite domestic destinations are Chicago and New Orleans, while his favorite international destinations are Ireland, Greece and France.
He believes that travel is important for students and gives them some of their most memorable experiences. "Not all classrooms have four walls. One of the most valuable opportunities for young developing minds is to travel. Travel opens up a world of opportunity and a deep understanding of the world as a whole. It is invaluable to the social and personal growth of a student. It broadens their horizons and forces them to think bigger than themselves. The memories made exploring with fellow students are those that will last a lifetime".
Trent enjoys all aspects of travelling. From the airport to the destination, he enjoys the sites, sounds, people and of course, the food. He enjoys meeting new people in new places. "I always consider travel a special occasion, so I'm one of those who still likes to dress up when flying".
In his daily life, while not on the road, Trent enjoys living on the Alabama Gulf Coast. This affords him and his family the opportunity to "roam" the Coastal Communities and the Mobile Bay area enjoying the various historic sites, cultures and cuisines that can only be found there. An occasional trip to nearby Biloxi or New Orleans is never out of the questions. A native of the Pensacola area, he resides in Daphne, Alabama with his wife Marjorie and their two boys, Collin and Brayden.
