My name is Pat Gyles. This is my 25th year here in the district. I have spent those years teaching science and PE at Eagle Rock and then most recently teaching chemistry at Skyline High School. I have always tried to incorperate technology in my classroom and have also enjoyed helping others with this process.
My role is to help you integrate technology in the classroom. I will not be forcing you to use technology but rather serving as your personal trainer when you decide that there is a piece of technology that you want to try in your classroom. I look forward to working and learning with you during the coming months.
I think it is important to remember that technology is just a tool to support your instruction. It will not replace you or will it let you kick your feet up and do nothing. It should however enhance your teaching and the learning of your students.
