Gayle Middleton

Gayle Middleton is a fifth-grade teacher who has embraced Google Apps in her classroom over the past several years using hand-me-down hardware.  Her technology training has come from the classroom, where she often learns as much from her students as they learn from her.  Gayle comes to education with previous professional experience, where she was always required to keep up with the latest technology.  She now believes technology should not be a separate subject in school, but instead should be the way students produce their work on a regular basis, just as they will be doing in the real world.
