My Students

I am privileged to teach 50 outstanding students. My ESL and traditional students are very inquisitive, creative, and extremely clever. We are a Title I school where over two thirds of the population receives free or reduced-price lunch. Even through adversity these students are still resilient, excited, and enthused about learning.

Our school is very culturally diverse.

We are extremely competitive, and we strive for excellence daily.

Willing, ready, and always trying to stand out above the rest, we need to produce competitive scholars for the future. We are shining stars and would love to shine with or above the rest.

My Project

My scholars need to learn about financial literacy at an early age. Most students don’t have any idea about the value of money at this age. I want the students to learn the differences between wants and needs in addition to spending and saving.

By exposing students to financial literacy at an early age, this can be the beginning to a lifelong of financial freedom.

The students will need banks to see how much money they can save weekly, biweekly and monthly. They will graph the savings throughout the school year to see who can save the most. Also, use their earbuds to watch videos about savings, credit, debit and other related financial literacy activities.

Students will use a variety of tools to establish a solid foundation associated with finances. These materials will be a great way to make learning about financial literacy relevant!
