About Us


Hi, my name is Michelle Castro and I am co-creator of The Happy Class.

I have been studying self-improvement and mindfulness for over 15 years. Creating The Happy Class with my sister and best friend has been an absolute dream come true.

The stigma surrounding mental health is prevalent in our modern society. Awareness is slowly shifting, but more discussion is needed to help facilitate lasting change. I'm happy to be part of a program for kids that addresses mental health in a positive way.


I am most present and at peace when I am surrounded by nature.


Hi, my name is Brigitta Pacheco and I am co-creator of The Happy Class.


I believe that we have the ability to be in control of our own happiness. I strive to live my life based on the principles and the values that guide The Happy Class. Becoming a motivational speaker for kids is part of my goal of sharing this with others.

Over the years, through many challenges, I've learned that it really comes down to the simple things in life. When looking for joy and peace, being mindful is a core practice that's helped me re-frame my focus and set myself up for success.

I am a nature enthusiast and animal lover.
