Transformative for Urban Educators


Alexes Terry, a product of hard work, love, and struggle in her life, has written her breakout book to educators, not to provide a quick fix, but to reimagine the teaching of our nations youth. Using strategies based on loyalty, authenticity, and culturally relevant teaching (to name a few), Terry creates an acronym for educators to keep in follow in order to truly teach children, specifically urban youth, and help them reach their true potential. Terry’s powerful personal testimony embodies the tenets of R.E.A.L L.O.V.E., making the book not just informative, but transformative. No matter what type of educator you already are, this book empowers you to become more aware of your own practices, and to improve upon them, or add to them. For those who already have similar pedagogy, this book validates, nearly characterizes, and invigorates, inspiring many to push farther and continue in their practices. And for educators who struggle to reach their students, this book provides an awakening in simple, easy to understand demonstration of how following the practices of R.E.A.L L.O.V.E. can revamp teaching instruction, and truly educate students on an amplified level- essentially helping students to see and reach their full potential. And for all the educators in between, this book can be the push- the motivation to do more, to be better, to try from a new perspective. Terry, has laid the foundation for her work, and I look forward to her next steps in educating educators.

Great Read for Educators!

Jenna M.

This book dives deep into musts for educators (especially in urban schools), but more importantly, provides educators with the how part of the equation. The strategies in this book don’t require elaborate resources or planning, but they are new and creative. And, since they are presented between portions of the author’s personal story, the objective of the strategies is clear. I very much enjoyed reading this book, and I will certainly refer back to it throughout my teaching career!

Must Read Book!

Tenasia P.

Great anecdotes and strategies that are REAL and that show scholars real love. Recommended for all grade levels and teaching backgrounds.

The Coaching Was Life Altering

Connie W.

I truly enjoyed working with Alexes over a 6 month period starting in February 2022. She helped me work towards my goals of improving work/life balance, losing weight, and getting more sleep by teaching me to better manage my time, set priorities, and control my emotions. The biggest change I noticed since beginning the program was the ability to wake up earlier and get into a productive morning routine, something I'd never done before...I am NOT a morning person at all! I would describe Alexes as more than my coach, she was a part of my village that I relied on to make it through some difficult life decisions and quell my anxiousness over having surgery. I would recommend Alexes to anyone who is looking for life-altering advice and a compassionate accountability partner.

This Book Study is a Critical Need for Educators!

S. Zachary (Principal)

In this engaging session, Alexes used the concept of REAL LOVE to provide a foundation for my teachers to understand culturally relevant and responsive pedagogy in a relatable manner. Her personal story is captivating and one that every educator needs to hear. Her presentation style was energetic and hands-on in which she use various engagement strategies to connect with audience. This professional development served as a kickoff to our book study on culturally responsive teaching. Alexes' personal story coupled with emphasis on key classroom and instructional strategies gave our teachers insight behind the work we do and why it is so critical.

Alexes Inspired Me to Get Back on Track

Brandy W. (Educator/LPC)

Following Alexes on IG inspired me to get back on track with my wellness journey. Alexes’s words of inspiration, transparency & authenticity as a wife, mother & entrepreneur helped me to connect with her as a woman--this is why I would definitely recommend Alexes to others!
