About Gail Lovely:
I am a former classroom teacher in grades K-8. I believe that teaching is my calling and a deep part of who I am. I taught in Southern California inner-city schools for 9 years before moving into first district, and later county-level, positions in staff development and technology in the classroom. I founded a company, Lovely and Associates, to help educators integrate technology and curriculum through excellent staff development and support. Along the way I developed integrated curriculum experiences for teachers and students and provided innovative staff development using innovative models of meaningful and active learning in realistic curriculum-rich settings. I enjoyed being an Adjunct Professor at Pepperdine University for many years, teaching technology integration courses to students in the Graduate School of Education and Psychology, and also enjoyed my time teaching undergraduates at the University of Houston. Along the way I have hosted an online community for K-2 teachers on Scholastic Network, founded the K2 Email List for Classroom Connect, written ongoing columns in Learning and Leading with Technology, Instructor Magazine, Electronic Learning, and Curriculum Administrator Magazine. I love to teach and continue to do so by sharing my vision for the active classroom, the improvement of the relationship between teacher, learner and curriculum and other inspirational yet practical messages through many keynote sessions at educational conferences and by hosting professional development seminars. I am the proud mother of two technology-savvy boys ages 16 and 19. We currently call Friendswood, Texas home.
