Charell G. Coleman

Charell is an educator, author, speaker and book publisher who is writing books to help increase literacy and speaking about her own past to help others heal from their trauma and lead lives they love.

As a lifelong learner, she holds Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education as well as an Education Specialist degree in Instructional Technology. Additionally, Coleman has been trained and certified through Harvard University’s Aspiring Leaders Program. Her favorite way to spend her time is finding ways to be well for herself and others, speaking on self-care and healing, reading and volunteering in the community, and working with the Anti-Defamation League.

Coleman has an enthusiastic and engaging way of presenting the topics of Student Engagement, Executive Functioning, Social-Emotional Learning, and motivational speaking topics such as Learning Through Living: “Using Resilience As a Tool,” and she often shares her “Just Be Human” speech which captures her own life story to remind others that we are simply human if we look from the inside out!

But mostly, she enjoys making others smile with her million-dollar charm, especially friends and family, her two children, and her husband.
