I’m on a mission to teach kids the skills they need to be happy.

Research has written a set of instructions for living a happy life.  For example, did you know that people who log eight hugs a day report being happier than those who fall short?  Happiness, it seems, has a science behind it.

You don’t need to look far to see an example of the confusion, sadness and self-loathing today’s children are facing.  Bullying, school violence, promiscuity, eating disorders, and drug use are the epidemics plaguing today’s children.  This tornado of challenges can feel daunting.

The good news is that I believe happiness can be taught. 

As teachers we have a rare and precious opportunity to eradicate the epidemics our students are battling and to provide them with the life skills they need to grow into happy adults.

The path to a happy life lies at the intersection of self-awareness and self-acceptance.  Here I provide ideas and lesson plans backed by research and neuroscience that you can implement in your classroom today that will help children find their way to this happy place.

Will you join me?
