Gwyneth Anne Jones is the Maryland Public Television Teacher of the Year.

Gwyneth Anne Jones is the Library Media/Technology Specialist at Murray Hill Middle School, Howard County Public School System, Maryland. In that capacity, it has been a goal of hers to encourage math and science teachers to utilize the resources found in the library media center and to provide them with innovative ways to incite students' enthusiasm for their own learning. Whether utilizing video, the Internet, CD-ROMs, traditional research resources, digital photography, TV production, digital editing, WebQuests, software applications, information literacy skills, or the NTTI binder, Gwyneth assists her fellow teachers and students to explore a variety of ways to enliven the curriculum. She believes that when students have a sense of ownership about what they learn and how the knowledge is gained, then learning has true value and meaning to them. Gwyneth is committed to the NTTI's "turn-key" philosophy of peer training, mentoring, sharing resources, and teaching technology skills through her school, county and state-wide programs.

Gwyneth is a former Maryland Public Television (MPT) 1998 NTTI Master Teacher and a 1999 MPT Internet workshop presenter. The Web site she designed for the 2000 MPT NTTI, Internet Integration: a Jump Start has won the coveted A+ Education site from Eduhound.com. She also presented an Internet workshop at the MPT 2000 BioHealth Link: Questions of Cancer Summer Institute, held at the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health.

Gwyneth left a career in advertising, public relations, and marketing nearly nine years ago to pursue a career in technology education and in her words, "I love it, and I never looked back!" She now uses effective communication skills gained through her experiences in the business world to communicate her love of research and information gathering, reading, and technology with her students.

Gwyneth holds an undergraduate degree in English Literature and a Masters of Instructional Technology, both from Towson University.
