"My eCoach has changed the way I teach, manage my classroom, parents and students. Parents can check their child's homework and know what their child learned in my class on a particular day. Students can download homework or worksheets they missed while absent. I put many helpful hints and valuable information for all my shareholders. I'm in the process of turning my classes into a paperless system. Everything I need is available to me here on My eCoach. "
