My Students

Students in my Financial Literacy are learning to become responsible community members and learning life skills that they will all use at some point in their lives.

In May this year, these students will learn about Wealth and Giving as one of their last units.

One of the things that they will end up doing is a project where the will Pay it Forward. Students in my class have worked all year to learn how to build and protect their wealth. These students come from all different backgrounds and I want them to share how they learned about building wealth and how to pay that forward, even if they don't have money to give.

My students are hard workers and they love sharing information about what they learn in this class. Our school requires financial literacy for graduation and completion of this unit will help these students meet this standard. My students live in a very giving community.

My Project

Students in my Financial Literacy class will end the year with a Unit that teaches them to be a philanthropist after building their own wealth. Not only does this unit teach students the importance of donating, but it also shows them ways to donate.

Sometimes donations don't have to be monetary, but rather with their time.

Giving your time to someone can change the trajectory of their life for the better.

I want students to be impacted by this classroom set of books and to be able to Pay it Forward. One student may not change the world, but they may affect one person who changes the lives of many!
