About Early EDventures

Proclaimed cheese hater and 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Shelley Coates is quickly rising to the top of her class social sphere. Launching her “Early EDventures” late in 2017 this YouTuber is documenting her teaching journey and supporting colleagues, amassing 50K+ channel views and 11K+ Instagram followers. Shelley transforms and instructs, coaching and designing through DIY tips, humor and passion. Now the teacher uses her platforms for advocacy, inspiring beyond the classroom in solidarity with the #ArmMeWith teacher’s movement for better resources and funding for schools instead of arming teachers with weapons.
