Jenna Rhodes: Neuroscience and Education
Jenna Rhodes talks about her collaboration with the neuroscience-based teaching program, NeuroTeach Global.
In this episode, Neuroscience and Education, we talk with Jenna Rhodes from Crisp County Schools in Georgia about her collaboration with the neuroscience-based teaching program, NeuroTeach Global.
When Jenna Rhodes entered the classroom, she admits that she knew more about biology than pedagogy. But as she began her teaching career, she became fascinated how she could become a better teacher, using biology— brain science in particular.
Jenna’s quest for understanding led her to NeuroTeach, a book based on the work Glen Whitman and Dr. Ian Kelleher. Jenna was amazed at what she learned— and started a quest to partner with NeuroTeach to bring neuroscience-based teaching to her district in one of Georgia’s most impoverished counties.
In this episode of SchooCEO Conversations, Jenna discusses how neuroscience has impacted her work as an educator and what school leaders can do to better teach in concert with their students’ brain development.
