Lori Desautels, Ph.D.
Teachers have the power to change the course of a life. Research shares that by the time a student graduates from high school they have spent over 10,000 hours in a school environment. And yet, there appears to be a lack of fundamental courses in schools of education and an overall misunderstanding from many political and educational reformers addressing the power and magnitude of teaching from the heart. Lori is a university supervisor for the Indianapolis Teaching Fellows and Teach for America programs. She is an instructor at both the undergraduate and graduate levels at Marian University in Indianapolis, IN. Lori's passion is engaging her students through neuroscience in education, integrating Mind Brain Teaching and Learning Strategies into her courses at Marian.
