What Do Educators Say?

Stacy Smulowitz, Ph.D. Educator

Assistant Professor

Before taking Kim’s program, I felt overwhelmed, exhausted, and stressed. Within the first several weeks of Kim’s class, I learned strategies to overcome these feelings. As a result, I’m a better mom, wife, daughter, and coworker because I’m better able to handle all that life throws at me. Kim is an inspiration. Every woman needs to take her class. It’s worth every penny!

Allison Darling Educator

High School Teacher

I joined Kim's Happy Academy because I felt depleted in my job and as a wife and mother. Because of what I learned in this program, I have launched my other passion, my photography business, and I have the confidence to go after more of what I want in life. I loved the group coaching calls and always left them feeling inspired and ready to take on the world.

Melissa Gill Educator

Assistant Principal

Our corporation joined the Happiness Academy, and it has been absolutely amazing! Our teachers love the monthly lessons that give them the motivation to keep going each day. Having a focus on self-care for our teachers is making a huge difference in our culture and climate.

Caitlyn Jennings Educator

Reaching Students in Deeper, Genuine Ways

Before the Happiness Academy, I felt like I had lost my passion for teaching, especially in a COVID world. Fast forward 7 months and I have seen and felt a HUGE personal transformation brought about by Kim's videos, workbooks, and coaching calls. Her delivery is succinct, engaging, and impactful! After implementing strategies and concepts I learned here, I am not only more positive and present at home, but I am also reaching my students in deeper and more genuine ways at school. If this program can help you achieve positivity and resiliency during a global pandemic, what can't it do?!?"

Jayme D. Knochel Promote the SEL Needs of Staff and Students

Assistant Superintendent

Purchasing The Happy Academy for our district was a big decision, but we felt employee wellbeing was a priority. Having someone who is fun, enthusiastic, authentic, and able to promote the importance of our staff and students' social and emotional needs was the best way to support a positive climate and culture.

Val Francis Educator

5th Grade Teacher

Taking the leap to join The Happy Academy has been life-changing for me. Spending money on my kids is easy, but I struggle to spend it on myself. I am so glad I decided to invest in myself because Kim’s program has changed me as a mother, wife, and teacher. I have learned that making my well-being a priority makes me a better "me" for myself and those I love. Kim has helped me realize that I am allowed to let my light shine and be happy with who I am.
