    About the Authors

    Gayle H. Gregory is an internationally known consultant who has specialized in brain-compatible learning and differentiated instruction and assessment.

    She presents practical teacher- and student-friendly strategies grounded in sound research that educators find easy to use. Her interactive style and modeling of strategies help teachers and administrators transfer new ideas to their classroom and school with ease.

    She has had extensive experience in elementary, middle, and secondary schools, and in community colleges and universities. Gayle has also had district leadership roles, including the role of curriculum coordinator and staff development director. She has worked with instructional leadership teams in many schools and districts throughout the country, focusing on data analysis; using assessment, both formative and summative; and differentiating instruction based on readiness, learning profiles, and interests.

    Her areas of expertise include brain-compatible learning, block scheduling, emotional intelligence, instructional and assessment practices, differentiated instructional strategies, the use of data to differentiate, literacy, presentation skills, renewal of secondary schools, enhancement of teacher quality, the use of coaching and mentoring, change management, and creation of professional learning communities.
