Self-Care for Teachers is hard.
You have never-ending to-do lists, demands from administrators, & the literal weight of an
entire system on your shoulders. And don't get me started on all the other roles you play outside the classroom...partner, friend, parent, volunteer. It's no wonder YOU come last
on your list of "To Dos."
But trust me when I say that your investment in yourself will yield major returns in your life both in and out of the classroom!
Don't believe me?
Hi, I'm Alexis and I know your struggle.
As a former middle and elementary school teacher, I know all too well what it's like to wrestle with teacher guilt, burnout, and the pressure to save a system on the brink of collapse.
In 2018, I created The AfroEducator to connect with other educators as I figured out how to better serve my students by prioritizing myself.
I create resources that empower you to explore what it means to “become” through burnout, bureaucracy, and so much more. Together, we will ditch perfectionism, celebrate progress, and find joy in the journey.
The AfroEducator Podcast is your invitation to be educated and challenged to passionately pursue growth as we explore what it means to “become” through burnout, bureaucracy, and so much more. Ditch perfectionism, celebrate progress, and find joy in the journey.
Your Journey Begins Here...
The internet is chock-full of information, life hacks, and every tip you can imagine.
I don't want to be another loud voice adding to the overload and decision fatigue that so many educators already experience.
Get topically curated blog posts, podcasts, and paid downloads that support you through burnout, bureaucracy, and all the other nuances that come with being a K12 educator.
