"OK, I admit it. I put off getting active on My eCoach for quite some time. I was busy with daily routines, state reporting needs, student information systems and staffing needs. NOW it is time to spend quality time re-energizing myself and my staff with the fabulous and infinite resources on this site. I will encourage the staff at our school site to spend 30 minutes a day getting acquainted, responding to blogs and growing for the sake of our students!"
