HEY, I'M ANDRIANA!
Classroom Teacher, Social-Emotional Learning Coach, and Founder of The Active Educator.
I created The Active Educator platform to provide teachers with meaningful classroom and behavior management strategies that emphasize movement-based and social-emotional learning.
"Wow! Your classroom is so calm."
That’s the feedback I kept getting from my principal and teammates when they saw the level of student engagement in my classroom. As a teacher, I often spend time reflecting on my practice, so I started recording videos of myself teaching to help me understand what made my classroom management strategies so effective.
Around that time, I started sharing my in-action videos on Instagram and would post products periodically on Teachers Pay Teachers. As I started sharing my unique heart-centered approach, I started noticing how many teachers and students I could positively impact. As a result, I launched my first course, Heart-Centered Classroom Management, and it’s completely changed the trajectory of my business and career. I now have a suite of training resources, in addition to my membership, which allows me to actively engage with teachers and classrooms from all over the world!
I have spent a lot of time personally exploring what it means to live a balanced and healthy life, both mentally and physically, and this heart work has spilled into my teaching. It has become increasingly more evident to me how important movement and attention to social and emotional health is for both students and teachers. Because of this, I am passionate about empowering teachers to reclaim their confidence to actively show up in their classroom and develop a heart-centered culture and philosophy. I believe meaningful connections mean everything, for students and teachers alike.
