I empower educators to prioritize their wellbeing so they can step into the most confident, conscious, & authentic version of themselves yet!

Alexis Shepard, M.Ed

Start your nurturing your own wellbeing with my free guide to taking guilt free days off! 

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. 

Dear Teacher,

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.
