My 7th- and 8th-grade students are an exuberant bunch of teens who love to socialize and have fun.
Our students are diversity personified: from painfully shy to audacious; from studious to silly; from spoiled to neglected; from being treasured to traumatized.
When they arrive each day, some of my students are ready to be challenged and others are ready to be challenging. One thing's for certain: there's never a dull day when you're teaching in middle school, and each day is sure to be full of surprises!
One of my biggest goals for my home economics class is to teach my students how to be financially literate. Last year, I spent a lot of time on this topic and, although some of my students really got it, many seemed underwhelmed by such concepts as savings, the dangers of credit, and budgeting.
FinCamp+ will help me find ways to keep these topics engaging for my students as well as contributing to my deeper understanding of taxes, budgeting, and investing.
Please help me with some of the associated out-of-pocket expenses for food and travel as I journey to FinCamp+ this August. Thank you!
