Financial Literacy- A Must Have 21st Century Skill!
For almost 10 years I have been passionate about including some aspect of Financial Literacy in every class I teach. From developing SMART goals and creating a Personal Budget, to managing credit and staying out of debt, in today’s world, understanding how to successfully manage your money is a fundamental skill. Personal Finance is essential to every High School Curriculum. I believe its importance is overlooked and would love to see it as a required component for high school graduation credits.
This fall I was asked to present a Professional Development session on Personal Finance at the 2018 NHAFCS conference on March 23, in Manchester, NH. The following information includes my presentation and a listing of valuable resources to get anyone started on the road to Financial Fitness!
