If you want to support teachers when there is no one to help or when it feels like nobody has time, you’re in the right place.

On-Demand Teacher Support
I love this quote from Founder & CEO of engage2learn, Shannon Buerk. It sums up the power of coaching: “Everyone deserves a coach, no one deserves a critic.” So what exactly does mySmartCoach do? mySmartCoach is self-driven and job-embedded professional learning for educators.

Support for Busy Educators
If you’ve listened to my Easy EdTech Podcast this year, you know that I’ve shared lots of time-saving tips. As a classroom teacher, I often felt swamped at the end of the day. Sometimes it felt like my to-do list couldn’t get any longer. So you can imagine that my ears perked up when the team behind mySmartCoach shared some of the ways that their dynamic platform can offer support for busy educators.
mySmartCoach provides coaching and learning resources personalized for each educator.

This could happen during an extra prep period added to their schedule or a day when everyone in the school is dedicating time to their professional learning.
With mySmartCoach you can also save time looking for new teaching strategies and resources. It provides personalized tips for educators based on their professional goals. So you don’t have to spend hours searching online for tips to strengthen a focus skill.
