The Gaggle Story

Jeff Patterson wanted to bring the power of digital communication to schools to engage and motivate students. Understanding that student safety was a primary concern, Jeff created a system that identifies suspicious items and allows control and transparency for teachers and administrators.

Since the inception of Gaggle as a student email provider in 1998, the company has grown significantly adding products that help schools create safe learning environments. When asked why he chose the name “Gaggle,” Jeff replies: “Our goal was to give teachers an easy way to watch over their gaggle of students.” Jeff’s vision of student-centric schools using cutting-edge technology to safely inspire creativity and ingenuity remains the driving force in Gaggle’s ongoing story.
