My Wellbeing Journals are workbooks for students produced by Teachers 4 Teachers.

I have written accompanying teacher’s manuals that provide background information on each topic as well as lesson plans and additional materials to aid in the teaching of wellbeing.



Pennington Education donates a portion of all proceeds of the Leaders of Tomorrow program to You Can Sit With Me: a simple wristband with a life changing message. Visit to learn more.

To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
