"My eCoach has been the ideal platform for many of our goals at the Bay Area Foreign Language Program. We use it to share our materials, announcements, and calendars, and the participants in our professional development programs have the opportunity to communicate and share with their colleagues across the Bay Area. This is a wonderful way of developing and supporting our professional learning community."
