My Students

Our school represents a large variety of students from various countries all over the world. One hundred percent of the students at my school receive free or reduced-price lunch, and we are a school-wide recipient of Title I funds.

Want to know one of my favorite parts of my job?

I love seeing the change that students undergo over the course of the year. I am fortunate enough to see kids develop ways to express kindness each and every day. They use manners that weren't present in August. I have seen students who loathe reading turn into book lovers. Few things make me smile like seeing my kids pull out a book when they have an extra few minutes. My classroom is full of faces and personalities that will impact our future world. As a teacher, I believe it is my job to do everything I can to make sure that impact will be a positive impact!

My Project

With the Kids Financial Peace Kit and Financial Fiction Stories, my students will have the opportunity to learn about what money is and how it works. So much of what my students know about money is colored by their misconceptions.

Money: You can't live without it.

With our classroom economy, students perform jobs in the classroom--everything from cleaning boards at the end of class to sharpening pencils before the day gets started. Students learn to manage their money and even a few toys from a prize bin.

The pouches are a great place for students to keep their money and learn financial responsibility to help them throughout their lives.
