"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!"
