"My eCoach is my go to program or organization to assist me in getting my curriculum online in an efficient, coherent, multi-media platform. I use my sites for my school homepage and several units of instruction. All the resources I need are at our fingertips to engage my class. My students love our days in the lab with the projects that I’ve assembled online with the help of My eCoach."
