"I love My eCoach because of the ease of use and the multiple things you can do with the components. As the district mentor, I utilize the Survey tool on a regular basis to create professional development surveys to help our district better provide the PD our staff feels they are in need and to evaluate the workshops we provide. The fact that we can share resources has assisted me in my teaching assignment both in the regular classroom and now in the Library Media Center.

When I was completing my certification as a Missouri eMints teacher I utilized My eCoach to create those digital items and projects needed for coursework. It was easy to create, store and provide to the evaluation team. Barbara was always available as a sounding board on these projects and helped me make them even better. She even assisted on the editing portion.

I love the resource of My eCoach! It has saved me many exhausting hours when creating lessons for my students or assisting proteges! "
