"Twist" The Way
You Do Teaching

TwistEd Teaching is an educational consultancy company with the goal of helping teachers and school districts “twist” their approach to pedagogy and student engagement. We provide professional development guidance in creating culturally responsive learning environments, curriculum development, and coaching. Our goal is to help educators and administrators create learning environments that are equitable, culturally relevant, and responsive, engaging, and attentive to student needs. By “twisting” our approach to teaching, we can develop educational practices that support all students and lead to a brighter future for everyone.

REAL LOVE offers strategies that are rooted in the theory and practices of Culturally Responsive and Reality Pedagogy. Alexes Terry challenges educators to reconsider outdated and oppressive educational practices, and pushes them to create learning environments, education experiences, and lessons that are equitable, engaging, and enlightening, and which 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.
