My Philosophy
I believe that every student given the right supportive environment can become a successful learner. Given that, I also believe the same for teachers. Teachers are part of the group we endearingly call lifelong learners. Our goal for the teachers we work with is to help them fulfill their learning goals through creating an inviting Professional Learning Community where they are inspired and productive, giving them a place they can always trust.
My Community
I am a head eCoach so my community is all over the place, but mostly I work face-toface in local urban schools and in the My eCoach Learning Community with teachers all over the country. That is the beauty of having an online environment as your home base. I live in the bay area where every day on my way to work and school I see the great sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay, have the most incredible selection of great food from around the world, and where the weather is a temperate climate. Here there is a great interacial community, an assortment of languages spoken and incredible cultural traditions practiced. This is what makes my community such a rich place to live.
My Environment
The urban schools in my area are large and generally have more students in a classroom then is ideal for creating a good learning environment. But the teachers that I work with are intelligent, skilled and passionate about their students and teaching.
