"With all the technology tools being developed, I love eCoach for the ability to use multiple tools within one environment. My eCoach has become my one-stop online community to: develop my individual lesson plans, work with colleagues on educational projects and tasks, create web pages for my students and parents linked to my district/school webpage, to create blogs both personal and for my students, and so much more. I continue to be inspired every time a new improvement is added to eCoach assuring me that this professional community is continually growing and changing based on our needs and interests. "
