My Philosophy

Being part of a "community of practice", teachers, administrators, students, anyone can collaborate and share and learn from each other. I have met good teachers around the country who feel isolated and want to connect with others like themselves. I created My eCoach® to have an online safe environment that builds communities through coaching and mentoring programs. I wanted to harness the power of the Internet to make a learning community where everyone shares ideas and resources and helps each other so they do not reinvent the wheel over and over again. My focus has been "Making Learning Personal" and the only way to engage learners is to hand them the keys so they drive their learning.

My Community
The San Francisco bay area is a very diverse community with a exciting mixture of ethnic groups, delicious eateries, and lots of things to do. We have the best weather and climate and from the East Bay we have the best view of the city. My eCoach® offers anyone an online community where learning and sharing can happen at anytime from anywhere.

My Environment
The My eCoach environment changes often where groups start their own communities for their school, district, online course, cancer support group, book club, almost anything.

My Roles and Responsibilities

My role is to provide the infrastructure for My eCoach and to make sure everything is working. I am co-founder of Personalize Learning, LLC so I write, present, design new materials, and coach. I also am responsible for maintaining my website, Rethinking Learning.
