Hey! I’m Alejandra Chavez.
Free spirited creativity & wellness coach, globetrotting educator, leader of the Happy Whole Teacher Revolution, soultry singer, green smoothie lover, white frangipani flower junkie, single mother of an awesome TEEN and on a mission to change the world.
During the last eighteen years I have taught all over the world as an art teacher in Bolivia, Turkey, Indonesia, Venezuela and Bahrain and recently, spent two and a half years in China as a lower school principal. It was here that I decided it was time for a change. It was time to listen to my truth. It was time to walk my talk and take control of my happiness, health and finances and live the life I truly wanted to live rather than just keep dreaming about it and not taking action.
I knew I wanted three things:
1. Rebrand and turn this blog into my online business and move it towards wellness and personal development
2. Teach, inspire and coach others to be happier, healthier and wealthier
3. Start a revolution of creative, free spirited, happy whole teachers ready to make a change
I got my health and wellness training from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and specialise in creativity and using it to help you create the body, business and life you truly want and deserve. We forget that we are creative beings (even if we are art teachers) so as a creativity and success coach– it’s my job to remind you of this and get you into serious creative action.
If you’re not ready for a life overhaul- this is OK too. Everyone is on a different journey. You might just need some creativity coaching for your lessons, up and coming art show, displays, lesson planning or how to deal with stress at school, home, or whatever. I am brilliant at this.
I may not teach art in a classroom anymore and that’s ok because I have other things to teach now and know that this is my mission.
Everything I have learned along the way (in education and in life) is what I want to teach and pass on to you- if you are ready.
Art Lessons For Kids will still remain a blog with all my awesome lessons to help you with your planning and teaching. The lessons are geared towards students from Pre-Kinder to Grade Seven but also highly adaptable for any age group.
But if you are ready for a change. Ready to be your higher self. Ready to be a better teacher, parent, friend, partner and human being. Ready to be healthier and more balanced. Ready to take control of your finances by starting your own part-time online business like I did. Ready for a life by design-YOUR design – then stick around because this is going to be an awesome journey and ride.
Throughout the year you will have many opportunities to connect with me via my coaching programs, The Happy Whole Teacher newsletter (see below), challenges, our thriving and growing Facebook page, right here on Art Lessons for Kids and very soon over at my new website alejandrachavez.co (coming soon..).
