LaVonna Roth

Creator & Founder of Ignite Your S.H.I.N.E.® & CEO of Brain-Powered, LLC

Thousands of educators are exiting the field of education every year, exhausted and burnt out. Frustrated by this crisis that hurts our students, LaVonna set out on a worldwide mission to serve educators, authoring 8 books on brain research and engaging instruction, creating the Ignite Your S.H.I.N.E.® framework, and providing professional development for educators internationally. She has worked with educators in the U.S./Canada, Europe, South America and the Middle East. Her life’s passion is to empower educators like YOU to find the greatness within your students and the greatness within yourself so we can radically shift the traditional approach on how to educate in order to best serve our students. As an elementary and secondary educator, keynote speaker, author, consultant and mom, she is here to serve you so you can effectively serve your students through the lens of brain research, social-emotional needs and the whole child!
