Teachers can have a strong impact on students’ happiness in their classrooms, and much can have to do with how happy teachers themselves are. Tonight, Wednesday, June 4, at 9:30 pm, WGBY airs Happy, a compelling global journey in search of what makes people happy. Happy explores the secrets of our most valued emotion, combining real-life stories from around the world and powerful interviews with leading scientists in happiness research.
