In this 150th Episode of The Wired Educator Podcast I share the Top Twenty Things I Have Learned Publishing 150 Podcast Episodes and Interviewing Amazing Educators!

I am so happy I started the Wired Educator Podcast, and it is amazing to me to see it now at 150 episodes. I have no intention of stopping now. In fact, I am looking to growing the podcast in new ways. 

I am thankful that you listen to the show, level-up each week, and make a positive impact in the lives of students. You are awesome, and I am not embarrassed to tell you that every week. 

I have learned a lot from publishing 150 episodes and interviewing educators from all over the world. I wanted to share a condensed list of what I feel my guests have in common, and what they do that makes them stand out. 

As I share what I have learned, I'll bet many will resonate with you. I'll bet you see yourself in a lot of these amazing qualities. I believe this because you are taking time to level-up. There are many commonalities in success. Still, I hope there are many that challenge you to grow and improve as they did me. 

It is my pleasure and honor to bring you the Wired Educator Podcast each week. 

I wish you an amazing 2020 filled with love and laughter, peace and prosperity, & love and laughter. 

Happy New Year!

Kelly

In this episode of The Wired Educator Podcast, I interview LaVonna Roth. We talk about the neuroscience connected with teaching and learning. LaVonna shares her message of Ignite Your S.H.I.N.E. and it will seriously make a difference in how you teach and how your students learn.  She breaks down the Acronym of SHINE for us and so much more. This is a great interview.

LaVonna Roth is the lead illuminator, creator and founder of Ignite Your S.H.I.N.E.® 

Self. Heart. Inspire. Navigate. Exceptional. These words capture the path that LaVonna Roth uses to challenge others in discovering how to ignite the S.H.I.N.E. in their students, others and self.  LaVonna will push your thinking and personal reflection to challenge you to grow personally and professionally. Her mission is to help individuals discover who they are, what they can become, and to build self-motivation to see how far they can go. She will passionately stretch the status quo in education and invite you to join her so “shifts happen”. One way to be involved is through social media, using #igniteyourSHINE.

LaVonna has a deep passion in using brain research as a fundamental foundation to help students, educators, parents, and the community to honor and value each other so we unite and become unstoppable in what can be achieved. By using these fundamentals, she identifies how to reframe adversities and use those moments to become the exceptional person you really are. This enlightenment will occur throughout but be brought to light as she shares parts of her own personal story.

As a highly energetic, dynamic and engaging FUNnote (keynote) speaker, learning specialist, author and consultant, LaVonna has a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education, a Master’s in the Art of Teaching and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. She taught at the elementary and secondary levels and is the author of 8 books. She has presented in the U.S., Canada, Europe, South America and the Middle East on increasing engagement and the fun factor in learning.  She is the creator and founder of the Ignite Your S.H.I.N.E.® movement and framework, where every person is encouraged to use his or her skills, talents and gifts… to illuminate the world. Together, we got this!
