Personal information

Bio
Kathy Snyder is a teacher at H. H. Dow High School in Midland, Michigan. She teaches IB/AP psychology and advanced psychology. She is also the social studies teacher leader. While her capstone focus was on elementary staff morale, she continually works to integrate positive psychology into her daily world: personal life, classroom, and staff professional development. Kathy also serves as a board member for The ROCK Center for Youth Development which works to improve the lives of youth in the community. More recently, Kathy is a co-organizer of a community-wide initiative to bring greater wellbeing to the Midland Community. Part of that process is to bring together community leaders (education, business, nonprofit) to learn the language of positive psychology through completion of CAPP through The Flourishing Center. Since CAPP completion, a Wellbeing Taskforce comprised of over 30 CAPP graduates is working to advance the work started in CAPP. Kathy is also working with Midland Public Schools on a Positive Education model and vision.
