Biography

Dr. Brodnax earned her doctorate degree from Indiana University in educational leadership, curriculum, and applying brain research to teaching, learning, and communication. Dr. Brodnax has had culturally diverse and in-depth experiences in the education field as a teacher, administrator, professional development coordinator, technology coordinator, dean, assistant superintendent, superintendent, university faculty, business consultant, and consultant with state departments of education and schools. She has trained thousands of teachers and administrators and worked with hundreds of schools in urban, rural, suburban areas as they pursued their continuous improvement, performance, and learning community goals.

Dr. Brodnax’s interest and passion for applying brain research to teaching and learning started decades ago when she began teaching and wanted to reach every single one of her students and not just the majority of them. She pursued brain research with the hope of finding out how to be more successful with all students. She found definite answers about how to use her own brain better and how to develop and grow the brains of others with real-world results.

Dr. Brodnax’s workshops are interactive, engaging, and participatory. She models the most powerful brain-based system and strategies to demonstrate how “brain compatible learner experiences” ensure learning, sustainable memory and growth in the neural networks of the brain. Participants experience firsthand, the power, delight, and real-world benefits of using their brains better.
