September 6th - Happiness Project
This will be an oral presentation that asks students to examine, reflect and share their insights into what makes them happy? The presentation can be pre-recorded and may include visual and/or digital aids. In answering the question on happiness, students will be able to share a little bit about who they are, what they value and how happiness informs their day to day lives. I am looking forward to learning a little bit more about you!
