"As a fourth grade teacher, I have used the My eCoach program to enhance learning for all of my students. I have had the opportunity to connect technology to the curriculum, which has greatly improved my teaching practice. My eCoach has gotten my students excited about learning and therefore, improved student achievement, strengthening their research, comprehension, and writing skills."
