Gabriele Educational Materials and Systems are GEMS! Developed over years in a busy classroom and then refined with theory and research, GEMS programs were created to meet the needs of the K-14+ education community: teachers, students, administrators and parents. They have widened and evolved to meet goals of the modern workplace. GEMS programs:

GEMS methods are multifunctional and learner-centered. Aligned with cutting edge theory and research in systems thinking, systemic change and systemic renewal, they combine the best of multiple approaches - including [1] directive and cooperative, and [2] top-down, bottom-up, and out-of-the-box. The programs are appropriate for children and adult learners. Incorporating unique visual displays and rapid reviews, GEMS RoundTable, effectiveness training, English Language Development (ELD) programs and user-friendly semester plans will benefit any learning environment!
