Aisha Taylor is a confidence coach, author, dynamic speaker, and highly-sought-after consultant. She is known for her uncanny ability to empower teachers and industry leaders to show up as their most confident selves, all while making a bold impact both in and out of the classroom.
Aisha built her coaching and consulting practice on the belief that boosting the confidence and “can-do” attitude of teachers and educational professionals has a rippling, positive effect on how students learn and grow both personally and academically. The transformative results that educators and industry leaders achieve after working with her are proof of that belief.
Whether they’re struggling to boost student engagement inside the classroom or navigate the hardships that often come with educating tomorrow’s leaders, teachers and industry leaders alike rely on Aisha’s expertise, programs, and courses to get clear, confident, and creative.
A recent principal, Aisha has more than a decade of experience and knowledge on how to teach through any moment, be it a pandemic or a personal crisis. She is also skilled at coaching professionals on how to maintain a resilient mindset and activate their emotional intelligence in a way that best serves students, staff, and colleagues.
No stranger to national platforms, Aisha’s confidence-boosting methods have landed her the keynote speaker spot at Success Women’s Conference and the Propelcon Virtual Conference, as well as features in Voyage Houston Magazine and on Fox 26 News, Black Educators Rock, and more.
And yet for Aisha, no stage or news feature can compare to what she values and loves the most: showing educators how to unleash their inner greatness so they can do the same for their students. That passion led her to pen a book now available on Amazon titled, Faith. Fear. Resilience. How to Reclaim Your Education Life.
If you’re an educator or industry leader in the education industry, Aisha wants you to know that confidence matters. And she’s ready and willing to help you unleash yours.
