I am pleased to announce that Gayla Brewer, the Director of Library Services at Chattanooga College, is the 2014 TEL Trainer of the Year.
She has embedded TEL into a myriad of classes at Chattanooga College, making sure that English, psychology and nursing students know all about the parts of TEL that are most helpful to them.
Her passion for TEL extends beyond campus and into the community. She’s provided training for the staff of other libraries, fellow church goers, and even the children of Chattanooga College students. Just this past year, she’s logged 65 training sessions for over 1,200 attendees. Gayla’s enthusiasm is a tremendous blessing to the Tennessee Electronic Library.
