Livestream Lunch and Learn: The Science of Happiness

May 20, 2020, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


The Program:

Just as we are all dreaming about our next vacation, many people believe that happiness is a vacation destination…”One day I will be happy.” Based on the work by Dr. Laurie Santos at Yale University, as well as other leaders in the study of happiness, we will take a brief look at the contagion, rewards & myths of happiness. Join us to begin the journey to happiness.

The Speaker:

Sondra Wallace is a servant, thoughtful and collaborative leader with over 20 years of experience in the Educational Community. She has an unwavering focus to meet social & emotional learning and wellness needs of our youth, educators and community, one human at a time. Building positive, healthy and trusting relationships with youth has always been at the heart of Sondra’s work. She is a certified Sources of Strength trainer and currently the Mental Health Coordinator for Jewish Family Services of Greater Kansas City.

Sondra and her husband, Spencer, have 2 kids: Alex, a freshman at K-State and Aleah, a sophomore at Olathe South HS and 2 dogs.
