CHATHAM, NJ - The Chatham Education Foundation will present Session III of its Future-Focused Education Series when it presents Jonathan Rochelle, co-founder of Google Docs and Drive Technologies, 7 p..m. Wednesday, May 28, at the Chatham Middle School Media Center.

Parents and students from grades five through 12 are invited to hear the presentation by Rochelle, director of product management for Google Apps.

Rochelle has been with Google since 2005, and is primarily responsible for Google Docs, Google Drive, Google Sites, and Google Apps Script.

Prior to joining Google, he co-founded, built, and sold two technology start-ups: ITK Solutions, a technology-focused consulting firm, and 2Web Technologies, a software product company responsible for the XL2Web product. 2Web Technologies was acquired by Google as the technology behind Google spreadsheets, which launched in 2006 as the first component of what became Google Docs.

Before founding the start-ups, Rochelle spent 16 years as a software engineer and applications development manager. He will share his thoughts on creativity, innovation, and the skills students need to be prepared for an increasingly collaborative future.

The Chatham Education Foundation is a leading provider of private funding to the School District of the Chathams. We support innovative and creative educational programs and special projects that are designed to enrich the mind and body of the estimated 4,100 K-12 students enrolled in the District's six public schools.
