Psychology research has demonstrated a strong link between happiness and success in the workplace. For example, Daniel Gilbert and colleagues have shown that happier employees tend to perform better, earn more money, and be more helpful to their coworkers. This TED talk The Happy Secret to Better Work provides an overview of this work. If happier employees are more successful, what about happier students? Is happiness connected to success in the classroom as well?
