Barbara Bray Bio:

Barbara is a coach, teacher, writer, disruptor, risk-taker, learning designer, connector, and visionary. She calls herself a creative learning strategist where others call her a “change-maker.” Whenever anyone told Barbara she couldn’t do something, she took it as a challenge. Her dream long ago was to create an online place for educators that was safe and secure with all the tools and resources in one place. She did it with My eCoach as early as 1999 — way before there was Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, or Pinterest. Barbara is what some call a “Digital Pioneer.” Barbara started her Rethinking Learning podcast to capture stories from people who inspire her. She invited people that were on her podcast or who had reached out to her to share their stories for her book, Define Your WHY published in February 2020.
