Alexis Shepard is a veteran educator with over a decade of experience in South Carolina public schools. Her career began as an elementary teacher where she taught 2nd and 4th grades before transitioning to the middle school setting. Alexis currently teaches 6th grade ELA where she uses a human-centered approach to facilitate students’ love of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. In 2018, she created The AfroEducator, after a burn-out experience that nearly pushed her out of the classroom. Alexis uses her voice and her expertise to empower educators to teach and live authentically. She believes that change is long overdue for teachers and is dedicated to leaving a lasting impact for the profession.
