Mrs. Olson from Clermont FL is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Engaging Kids in Financial Literacy, Florida Style

I need to attend the Get Your Teach On Orlando Conference to learn engagement strategies to better teach financial literacy standards.

  • $454 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

"Going Above and Beyond" is the expectation and the goal for everyone in my classroom, including the teacher! We strive every day, on every project, on every assignment, in our behavior and work habits to epitomize this statement. Working cooperatively is a huge part of this goal.

My classroom is filled each day with twenty-four fourth graders exhibiting a full range of reading and math abilities.

The classroom is full of activity as we fill every minute working toward academic excellence, and trying to have fun at the same time. Our school is a small STEM magnet school drawing students from a large area so they come from many different cultures and socioeconomic levels.

My Project

I am requesting the opportunity to attend the two day Get Your Teach On Orlando Conference to learn new ways to engage my students in exciting, yet rigorous, learning opportunities, especially in the area of financial literacy. Since the fourth grade Social Studies curriculum includes twenty-eight standards related to financial literacy, my students need to be taught these concepts in an interesting and relevant manner. Attendance at this conference will give me tools to present these standards to my students in an engaging fashion.

As we travel through Florida history and discover the important entrepreneurs who influenced the growth of Florida, we will learn how to be fiscally responsible using their accomplishments as examples.

The Get Your Teach On techniques will allow me to bring this information to life and integrate financial literacy into the lives of famous Floridians.
