My Students

My high school students are eager to learn about financial topics, even though it is required for graduation. Many of them have very little experience with the banking world but embrace the concept of saving and getting an early start on preparing for their financial futures.

What teen doesn't love to have money?

Many have just started working and are quickly learning the concept of "easy come, easy go". Whether through their own experiences, those of friends or family, most of my students want to put their dollars to good use.

My Project

Students need incentive to save when they first start earning money. By having personalized banks my students will be more motivated to save for their goals. In addition to personal banks there will be a classroom bank to fund a class "savings party" with found money. Money saved will be matched by me to reinforce the intended behavior.

Students will transform simple mason jars into a bank with a savings goal.

They will get to use their creative side to personalize their jars with the paint markers and slotted lids and hopefully begin a lifelong habit of working towards their financial goals.
