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 the #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.
