Rooted in the theories of Culturally Responsive and Reality pedagogy, Alexes challenges educators to reconsider outdated and oppressive educational practices and pushes them to create learning environments, experiences, and opportunities that equitable, restorative, and will meet the social, emotional, cultural, and academic needs of all students.

Alexes M. Terry

I am the founder and lead Instructional Success Consultant with TwistED Teaching Educational Consulting. As a native of Los Angeles, my experiences growing up in a community and attending schools negatively affected by gang-violence, drug abuse, and poor teaching inspired me to enter the field of education. I am a professional educator with 10 years of experience teaching, coaching, mentoring, and leading educators. I believe that coaching parents, leaders and teachers to success is more than just a profession or a passion, it is my ministry. Through TwistED Teaching, my overall goal is to change the lives of students through one empowered leader at a time.
