Janice has been a member of My eCoach since 2004.  Over the years she has had many different jobs and used My eCoach in different ways. In her own words: "My eCoach has been an important resource for me in the various things that I have done.  It has also been a place to make some long term friends that I don’t know in person, but only online. In 2001 I attended the NECC conference in San Diego. On the last day I was on the elevator of my hotel when I glanced at the name tag of the other person. It said Barbara Bray, Oakland!!  I knew her from an online discussion. It was so exciting to meet her in person. We also worked together at eMINTS National Center in Missouri.

 

With my eCoach all of the lesson plans and lists of links that I have used have been saved in one place with the original dates on them. I can go to the e-library and search for my name and see a list of all I have created and pictures that I uploaded. I used My eCoach a great deal when I worked at Barton Creek Elementary School for four years, from 2007 to 2011. It was a great help to find the Halloween sites that I had created the year before and just update it for the new year rather than starting all over. 

 

Today I am inventing a job for myself. I am the sole proprietor of "I’m not a Geek.com" I work with adults, mostly from age 40-80 who have missed out on the technology wave and want to learn before they cannot pay bills anymore the old way. I love it. I will have to think of ways to use My eCoach with these people also!!

 

Thank you, Janice, for all your years spent in educating both the young and the old!

Featured Project

Are You Ready for the Big One?

Don't be scared. Be prepared! This project, Are You Ready for the Big One? is meant to encourage elementary school kids to become more aware of their disaster preparedness needs. The approach is done in a fun and interactive manner so students are less fearful of what disasters bring to mind. It provides knowledge about disasters, especially about the ones that can affect them where they live, and development of a plan that will help to minimize damage and, in turn, avoid injuries. We can reduce the effects of natural disasters if we are aware, share and prepare!

"love My eCoach because it helps me so much in building units of study for my class. Now more than ever, this wonderful community will be my constant helper because I am a technology teacher for two elementary schools. I use the Universal builder a lot, and plan to use the survey builder very soon as well. I became a member when I was in my teaching credential program, and I loved it so much that I made a membership for my sister in Brazil (she loves it too).

Through the years, My eCoach has been here and it is strong and better than ever by providing an incredible support to teachers all over the world! Every time I receive a newsletter from Barbara my heart sings because I know she cares about all the teachers who rely on her website and community to excel in their teaching career. I say it because I rely on her and this site!

Thank you My eCoach for being here for me!"
