As a committed educator, youth advocate, parent and teen life coach, author and mentor, Shellie Slack's passion for youth continues to grow greater each day! With experience extending over 15 years, Shellie has worked with youth from elementary through high school in the capacity of instructor, tutor, mentor, advocate, teacher assistant, and dance coach. She has conquered challenges within her childhood, struggled with abandonment issues, fought with depression, and self-esteem issues which continues to strengthen her connection with today's youth.
TEEN LIFE COACH
Shellie has taken her childhood struggles and uses her past experiences as a driving force to continue writing and creating personal development books that serve as a resource tool for others. Her tools offer tips to strengthen self-awareness, self-discovery, and how to master a positive self-perception. As she continues to share her story with others, it is her passion for assisting youth to reach their full potential in life that keeps her thriving!
My educational philosophy:
"The social and emotional well-being of a child goes hand in hand with academics to prepare students for holistic success."

Shellie was positioned to begin her own business, B.E.-Transformation in 2018. It was her goal to provide communities, schools and non-profit organizations with helpful personal development resources for youth through fun and engaging workshops with a coaching style that will increase self-awareness for youth and parents/guardians. Through her personal development book collection, workshops and coaching techniques, personal transformation will occur through 3 components that are a catalyst for personal transformation; self-awareness, mastery of self-perception and self- discovery.
