My studies include a master's degree in Educational Psychology from Ball State University; a graduate certificate in Positive Psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia; a bachelor's degree in Psychology; and, I'm a certified life coach. During graduate school, I completed 8-week courses in MBSR training through Palouse Mindfulness and the Science of Happiness offered by UC Berkeley — once as an online TA. I teach pre-k through 12th grade in three school districts as a substitute teacher. In this capacity, I've worked with children who have educational and behavioral challenges such as ADHD, ADD, ODD, test anxiety, and trouble reading. I've worked in basic skills and resource classrooms either as the lead teacher or a para-educator. As a freelance writer and editor, I explore the intersection of positive, neuro, and behavioral psychology. My work is available to read through several sources:, Thrive Global, Ardent Path Journal, The Ascent, Better Humans, Publishous, The Startup,  The Writing Cooperative, The Post-Grad Survival Guide, and Fine Lines Literary Journal. 
There isn't any homework.
Students may find it beneficial to have a note-taking device or materials with which to take notes.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
There is no assessment.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The content is appropriate for ages 12 and up, though this class is only available to 14-18-year-old students. 
I invite you or your student to explore articles on the following site Please review articles before allowing your student to read them. Adults are the intended audience for most, if not all, Positive Psychology articles. Most times this has to do with the concepts, not the language used. Sometimes, I pull information from articles I've researched and written, but also include researched articles from other authors on this site.
